Rampur Raza Library


Origin

The library is a great source of Indo-Islamic literature. It was established by erstwhile Rampur State, which was founded by Nawab Faizullah Khan in 1774. He started with his own personal and official collection of documents and articles. Later the library collection was enriched with acquisition from other sources also. The library was also patronized by Nawab Muhammad Yusuf Ali Khan 'Nazim'. A separate department was created for the library and it was shifted to the newly constructed rooms of Kothi Genralie. Later Nawah Kalbe Ali Khan (1865-87) also patronized the library. Being a scholar himself he too enriched the collection.
