Muslim University

One of the Famous 'M's stand for "Muslim University". Obviously, it refers to Aligarh Muslim University and it is Aligarh city's primary attraction. When in Aligarh, i used to say that Aligarh minus AMU is a village and it wasn't much exaggeration. If you happen to visit the old city of Aligarh which is called sheher (Ironic ! Isn't it?) by people living near the university campus, you can know it yourself that bad state and poor maintenance of infrastructure and basic public amenities have reduced the city to a little over a village.

In contrast, the roads, drainage system and proper town planning do really exist in and around the University area. The lush green AMU campus is a visual treat for morning walkers/joggers who are found strolling/jogging/running on the campus roads.

To compliment the greenery, there are a lot of old and new beautiful buildings which draw your attention with one or two unique aspects of architecture. So, this is what makes it deserve a place in Famous 'M's.
