Sampurnanand Sanskrit University

Sampurnanand Sanskrit University (Sanskrit: सम्पूर्णानन्द संस्कृत विश्वविद्यालय, वाराणसी; IAST: Sampūrnānand Samskrit Vișvavidyālaya, Vāraṇāsī) is an Indian institution of higher learning located in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, India, specializing in the study of Sanskrit and related fields. It is India's oldest university which is still functional.
In 1791, during the British occupation of India, Jonathan Duncan, resident of the East India Company, proposed the establishment of a Sanskrit college for the development and preservation of Sanskrit Vangmaya (grammar) to demonstrate British support for Indian education. The initiative was sanctioned by governor general Lord Cornwallis. The first teacher of the institution was Pandit Kashinath and the governor general sanctioned a budget of Rs. 20,000 per annum. The first principal of Government Sanskrit College was John Muir, followed by James R. Ballantyne, Ralph T. H. Griffith, George Thibaut, Arthur Venis, Sir Ganganath Jha and Gopinath Kaviraj.
