Asia’s Oldest School, in Delhi, is Older than Delhi

Anglo Arabic School founded in 1696 by Ghaziuddin Khan, in Aurangzeb’s reign, in Delhi, is one of Asia’s oldest educational institutions. Opened as a ‘Madrasa’ (a college for Islamic Instruction), it is now a co-ed government aided school that promotes Urdu, Hindi, English, Persian and Arabic. In 1827, Sir Charles Metcalfe, added English, Mathematics and Natural Sciences in its curriculum.
