Department of Sanskrit

Started in 2008, the department of Sanskrit imparts higher education on Sanskrit language, literature, grammar and philosophy. Being the mother of all Indian languages and the most important among the IE family of languages, the study of Sanskrit can open the floodgates of knowledge both sacred and secular. The world’s most ancient Vedic literature, the Puranas and epics with a host of tales and fables dealing with moral principles etc. constitute the store-house of Indian wisdom, heritage and culture. The objective of the Sanskrit department of the university lies in making the students aware of the holistic approach to life and knowledge.
