In ancient times the area included in district Gorakhpur was mostly covered with forests where sages lived in ashrams (hermitages) and taught boys hailing from different parts of the country, Rama, the famous prince of Ayodhya, also is said to have passed some time at the junction of rivers Rapti and Ghaghra to receive instructions from Vishwamitra.

Education, which started at home, was continued in these ashrams where the students lived with the preceptor. Regular schooling began with the initiation ceremony called the upanayana. The pupil could generally study subjects of his choice, but instruction was given specially in the Vedic lore. The traditional ten branches of learning were itihasa purana (legends and ancient lore), vyakarana (grammar), chhandshastra (prosody), arthashastra (political economy), ganita (mathematics), jyotish (astronomy and astrology), anvikshiki (philosophy), dharmashastra (law), shastravidya (state-craft and military science) and ayurveda (the science of medicine). Studies were not undertaken then with an eye mainly on acquiring ability to earn a living but the inmates of the ashrams were expected to gain perfect knowledge of their duties ceremonial, moral and religious along with all branches of learning. Education was free and uncontrolled by the state, and the teacher gave individual attention to his pupils. Character building and personality development of students were the chief objects of education. The teacher was content with whatever was offered to him by his pupils or their parents. Apart from education, the basic necessities of life were also supplied free by the preceptors for which the students have to serve him whole heartedly.

In course of time, the system of imparting education under the direct guidance and personal care of the teacher become traditional, the establishments where no fees were charged, being called gurukuls. The gurukul system of education seems to have been continued with occasional modifications in the district till about the advent of the Muslims. During the medieval period, these institutions turned into private pathshalas (schools). In those schools which were attached to religious establishments, students were generally initiated into the profession of priesthood. A few elementary and secular schools also came into being in which reading, writing and little arithmetic were taught. When Muslims settled in this region, they founded their own schools, (maktabs or madrsas) where Maulvis instructed in branches of Islamic learning. During the rule of the nawabs of Avadh, the maulvis started small schools in various towns for the children of well-to-do residents, aspiring to enter into government service.

The institutions run by the Hindus and Muslims separately taught different languages but their characteristic features had similarity in many respects. According to Syed Nurullah and J.P. Naik, "Although the Hindus and Muslims had separate schools of learning several important features were common to both type of institutions. For example, both received pecuniary assistance from rules, chieftains and opulent or religious citizens. Both were staffed by learned teachers, some of whom were authors of repute, but most of whom received very low remuneration. In both, instruction was mostly given gratis and no regular fees, as now understood, were charged. Both were mediaeval in character used a classical language as the medium of instruction (Sanskrit in one case and Arabic or Persian in the other), imparted instruction on traditional lines. In both, the teachers were remunerated in one or more of the following ways, viz., grants of land made by rulers, occasional voluntary presents from pupils and members of the public, allowances paid by wealthy citizens and payment in the form of food, clothes or other articles. Lastly, both had a few teachers who not only taught gratis but also provided food and lodging to their pupils."

By the end of nineteenth century the old indigenous system of education began to lose ground and a new system of education which aimed at the spread of western knowledge through the medium of English language was firmly established in its place.

At the time of the annexation the district was extremely backward in education. "In the early part of the nineteenth century the old indigenous system of education began to lose ground and a new system of education which aimed at spread of western knowledge through the medium of English language was firmly established in its place.

At the time of the annexation the district was extremely backward in education. "In the early part of the nineteenth century Buchanan remarked that in many parts of the district there was not a single school."

In 1835, a free school was started at Gorakhpur by a local committee, but it was closed down after 9 years. In 1844, the Church Missionary Society started a school and for a long time it remained the only institution of importance in the district. In 1847, when the first report on the education was submitted, there were 243 Persian, 170 Sanskrit and 15 Hindi schools in Gorakhpur and Basti district with an aggregate of total attendance of 3808 students only. Village schools on the halqabandi system were first opened in May 1856 and at the same time tahsil schools were established at Salempur, Pipraich and Sahebganj.

Regarding the spread of education at that time the collector of district , Tucker, had remarked that with the exception of some Brahmins, some Kayasth officials and a few respectable Muslims, a population of 2.5 million was in a state of utter ignorance.

In 1850, a scheme for the development and improvement of indigenous schools as a means of spreading education among the people had been drawn up by the government of the North-Western Provinces. It provided for the establishment of a government village school at the headquarters of every tahsil. A school master, employed on a pay of Rs.10 to 20 per month, besides such fees as he might collect from his students, was to conduct the school, in which reading, writing, accounts, mensuration, geography, history and geometry were to be taught through vernacular medium. As these schools do not appear to have been very successful, they were replaced about five years later by the circuit or halqabandi school system initiated by Alexander, collector of Mathura.

In this system a group of four or five villages was marked out and the most central village was chosen for the site of school. The cost of running the school was met with the voluntary contributions from the zamindars, which was later converted into a contributory donation by them towards education, at the rate of one per cent of their land revenue. The halqabandi system could not reach the towns. The tahsil schools mostly located in towns catered to the needs of the people. The system of establishing zila schools had commenced first in 1859 in the region known as the North-Western Provinces which included the present district. It seems to have been adopted in Avadh, a few years later. The first zila school was established at Gorakhpur in 1875 which provided education up to the middle standard that is class eight.

In 1856, three tahsil schools were opened at Salempur, Pipraich and Sahebganj but due to the freedom struggle 1857, the work of imparting education received a set back. When the schools reopened in 1858, there were 52 students in the tahsil and 108 students in the eleven village schools.There was also a Church missionary Society school with 180 students and 96 schools on oriental system with 793 students on roll. Ten years later in 1868, the number was much larger. In addition to the Church missionary Society's high school and the orphanage there were 176 halqabandi schools with 9,505 students on roll, 11 girls' schools with 281 students on roll, 185 schools on oriental system with 2,243 students and 14 middle schools with an attendance of 1,116 students. In 1878, the number of schools had risen to 407, the aggregate number of scholars being 9,769. A zila or district school was established at Gorakhpur but it only taught up to the middle standards. There was an addition of a tahsil school but the Anglo-vernacular schools which were started in 1867-68 had in most cases ceased to exist. For another decade the matter remained much the same. By 1888 halqabandi schools had diminished by 80 and the total number of scholars in all government institutions numbered 7,371. The number of students rose to more than 20,000 in 1899. In 1905, about a hundred new aided schools were started having 6,000 students on roll.

In 1908, there were 529 institutions of which 9 were secondary schools having 3,775 boys and 27 girls on roll and 510 primary schools with 29,834 boys and 799 girls on roll. Some of the important ones viz. St Andrews' College, teaching up to class eleven arts standard, a high school, an Anglo-vernacular school, a vernacular middle school and 5 primary schools for boys, were run by the Church Missionary Society. The Jubilee high school was started 1875 as an oriental zila school, was reconstituted in 1887 as a municipal high school and in 1907 was handed over to the district board. The other two secondary schools were aided alongwith an anglo-vernacular.

Subsequent years saw further expansion of education in the district. In 1920-21, the important institutions of the town were the Government Jubilee High school, Gorakhpur High School, George Islamia High School and St Andrews' High School and College, besides 732 educational institutions of which, 59 were for girls. A decade later the number of schools and students went up. There were six high schools in 1930-31. The Balmukund High School and the Dayanand Anglo-vernacular High School were the two new educational centres to come up in the town. The other important institutions existing in the district consisted of the Agricultural School, the Government Technical School, the Theosophical Girls' School and the Arya Kanya Pathshala. The number of higher secondary schools rose to 53 with 6,076 boys and 1,186 girls.

Growth Of Literacy

In 1872, only 2 persons in a thousand could read and write but by 1881 the literacy rate rose to 3.6 per cent among males and 0.08 among the females. These percentages further grew to 4.4 and 0.15 respectively in 1891. Thereafter, there has been a steady rise in the number of literate persons both males and females. Achievement in this field during the last three decades is depicted below :

Professional And Technical Education

Before the mechanisation of industries there was hardly any scope for opening institutions of technical and professional education. In the age of handicrafts, skill in the production of goods was acquired through apprenticeship and dexterity passed on from generation to generation. But with the advent of machine technology and its application to spheres of production, propagation of professional and technical education became imperative.

The Industrial Training Institute, Chargawan is run by the State directorate of training and employment. It imparts training in trades of fitter, carpenter, turner, electrician, wireman, mechanist, refrigerator mechanic and steno-grapher. In 1974, the number of trainees was 680.

Nearly 7000 students receive such training in the senior and 15,000 in the junior division each year. Scouts training under the Bharat Scouts and Guides Association is given in nearly all the higher secondary schools and scouts and guides camps and rallies are  arranged every year. About 5000 students are trained each year.


Embroidery and knitting are favorite pastimes of the women. Wood carvers are occasionally seen with their artistic hands working on doors and sills. Icons and images of gods and goddesses are chiselled from stone blocks  and made to adorn the temples and shrines.


To earn his livelihood the common man has to work very hard. The womenfolk also join men, particularly in agricultural operations. Usually after the days' hard work men and women relax themselves with singing and  dancing. Agricultural operations like transplanting rice or harvesting the  Rabi crop or events like the birth of a baby or a marriage in the family are  special occasions for such entertainment and merry-making.
