Nalanda was a centre of learning established in the eastern Indian state of Bihar. Today the ancient seat of learning lie in ruins, though it is still the best place to see and understand Buddhism, the ruins extend over a large area. Many versions can explain the significance of term Nalanda, but one is that Nalam means Lotus and Da means "to give", combining Giver of Lotus or Giver of Knowledge.
