DISTRICT BEED            PHOTO GALARY

HISTORICAL INTRODUCTION:

           Ambajogai is a taluka in Beed District of Marathwada Region in the State of Maharashtra.  It is situated at a height of 2200 feet above sea level, with pleasant weather all round the year.

           During the Nizam rule Ambajogai was a cavalary head quarters, but that was dissolved after independence from Hyderabad State. The area occupied by calavary remained vacant.  To make the best use of this the Government of Hyderabad state started a small T.B. Sanitorium on the premises of the old cavalary building units.  First Government Medical College in Marathwada Region was started at Aurangabad in 1956.  Aurangabad happens to be at the extreme corner of Marathwada region and thus could not meet the requirements of this region.  After years of public agitation the concept of a Rural Medical College at Ambajogai, which is a central place for Marathwada region was accepted by the Government of Maharashtra and was cleared by the Planning Commission in 1974.

           Ambajogai town was selected for this purpose because of its pleasant weather, its central location in Marathwada and large number of buildings and vast premises left behind by the cavalary.  The various departments and hospital wards were housed in the converted and modified horse stables.  The hospital was upgraded to accommodate 500 indoor patients and 50 undergraduate students.  It was named after the leader of independence struggle against Nizam rule, Swami Ramand Teerth (then Hyderabad State Congress President).   

          The first batch of 50 students was admitted in the month of July 1975 and passed out in 1979.
