Panjab University is actually one of the oldest universities of the colonial India and it was established in Lahore in 1882 which is in the present day Pakistan. Following the Partition of India in 1947, the university struggled a lot and had no campus of its own for nearly a decade. The temporary administrative office of the university was set up in Solan of Himachal Pradesh and the scattered teaching departments somehow continued to work from various places like Hoshiarpur, Jalandhar, Amritsar and Delhi. In 1956, the university was relocated to Chandigarh under the design and supervision of the legendary French architect Le Corbusier. Nevertheless, until the modern day Punjab state was formed in 1966, the various departments of the Panjab University were scattered over many places like Shimla, Rohtak and Jalandhar and the affiliated colleges were spread across Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh and the Union Territory of Chandigarh.
