Madrasa Ghaziuddin Khan is a historical

Mughal empire. Following the discontinuation of its original function as a madrasa, it successively housed colonial-era educational institutions, such as Delhi College and the Anglo-Arabic school. Today, the Zakir Husain Delhi College operates in its premises, making the madrasa the oldest continuing educational centre in the city of Delhi.[1]

The structure is one of the few surviving historical madrasas in India, and one of even fewer madrasas dating back to the Mughal period.
