Some pieces of stones and building are there

Vikramshila was the ancient university in India, which is situated in Bihar, very beautiful and nice place after Nalanda University. This was very famous in ancient times, not only Indian students foreign students also come and study here. Now this time only some piece of stones and building are there, I felt proud that time when I visited there.
