Mayo College

Mayo College was built in AD 1873. One of the India’s best public schools, located in the south-east of the Ana Sagar, has now been converted to the Circuit House. The lake and the cenotaph and the shrine of the Hindu reformer Swami Dayanand, founder of the "Arya Samaj Movement" in India, can be viewed from here. The aim of the school was to provide liberal education to the young Indian princes and wards of the colonial rulers.
