They university came up around a beautiful Royal Tank (Hauz Khas). The tank was originally dug by the Khiljis in the 1200's, but it was deepened and improved by Firoz Shah Tughlaq (1309 - 1338). Can you imagine how beautiful this university must have been? It is a green oasis even now.

The university at Hauz Khas was established in 1352, and became one of the largest and best equipped Islamic seminaries in the world.
