Arts College: a historic masterpiece
The Hindu, Hyderabad, October 8, 2012

The building in pinkish granite stone represents a harmonious blend of pillars and lintel style of Ajanta and Ellora

The architectural uniqueness stirs romance and the stunning structure blows the mind. The unspoiled edifice reveals majesty and is the nucleus of the 95-year old Osmania University. This is the College of Arts and Social Sciences of the famed OU, popularly known as the Arts College. It is one of the major heritage structures in Hyderabad.

A team of experts travelled around the world to find the right design and the right person who could design this historic masterpiece.
The credit for the architecture goes to Monsieur Jasper, a Belgian architect.

Jasper prepared a detailed plan of all the university buildings. The execution of the plans was done by Nawab Zain Yar Jung, who was later awarded a Padma Bhushan for his outstanding service to the field of architecture.
