About azamgarh

Azamgarh is a part of the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. Named after its founder, Azam who was the son of Vikramajit, a descendant of the Gautam Rajputs, the city is the headquarters of three other districts, namely Balia, Mau, and Azamgarh. The sage Durvasa, from Hindu Puranas, is said to have had his ashram near the present-day city of Azamgarh. The Goddess Sati is said to have exhumed her life at Dakhsha's yajna which took place here, many eons ago. \r\n\r\nThe Gurudwara in Nizamabad possesses a pair of wooden slippers and dagger of the Sikh saint, Guru Govind Singh. Azamgarh is also home to the famous mosque of Rajaji Sahab and the temple of Thakurji. A few historical places in Azamgarh are Dattatreya, Govindsahab, and Avantikapuri. In the main city, there are a number of colleges for professional studies, like Engineering and Medicine.
