The capital of this kingdom of Magahda (modern Bihar) Patliputra, was a great center of learning, the famous university of Nalinda was situated here and it is widely speculated that Aryabhatta might have been head of the astronomical observatory. He was only about 23 - 24 years old when he composed his most distinguished work known the Aryabhatiya.
