IntroductionFaculty of Education came into existence in 1918 as Teacher's Training College and then shifted to Kamachha Complex as Faculty of the Banaras Hindu University. Since then the Faculty is trying its best to produce teachers embodied with cultural traditions of our society and also modern enough to keep pace with changing times. The Faculty is situated in Kamachha Complex of Banaras Hindu University in between Varanasi Railway Station and main Campus with equal distance.
