Uttarakhand was centre of education from the ancient time. It was believed that kauravas and Pandavas were trained by Guru Dronacharya in the foot hills of Himalaya thats why Dehradun is also known as Drona Nagari. India’s best schools and training institutes are located in Uttarakhand. Education in the state of Uttarakhand has a sound background, right from the inception of the state. Department of education is running ahead and getting shape gradually.
The state of Uttarakhand is carved out of Uttar Pradesh on Nov. 09, 2000. It is surrounded by U.P. on the south, Himachal Pradesh on the west, and international boundaries of Nepal on the east, China on the northeast. The total geographical area of the state is 53,483 sq.km which is 1.69% of total area of the country.
