Burdwan Raj College is one of the premier and oldest (established in 1881) colleges not only in the district of Burdwan but also in the whole state of West Bengal. The picturesque campus of about 17 acres is situated at the centre of the town, adjacent to the Railway Station, Medical College and Hospital and The University of Burdwan. The serene beauty of Shyamsayar adds grandeur to the College. The name of the College is so widespread that it needs no introduction. Nevertheless, a glimpse of the portrait of the College is cheering, a kind of sweet remembrance we always like to cherish.
