Birla Institute of Technology and Science, or BITS Pilani, which was established in 1964, is considered as one of the premier educational institutes of the country. It was founded by the Birlas in accordance with Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru's vision of nation building through science, technology and modernisation. The BITS Pilani campus is a splendid example of the combination of science with traditional heritage, and it has a number of structures celebrating modernity and ethnicity at the same time.
A great place to see inside the campus would be the iconic BITS Tower, a part of the main building of the institution. People can enjoy the local food in the dhabas around here. The best time for outsiders to visit the campus is during the three annual college festivals, when one can best experience the exciting student culture in the youthful atmosphere.
