Mahachulalongkornrajavidyalaya University (MCU)

Mahachulalongkornrajavidyalaya University (MCU) was established by His Majesty the King Chulalongkorn the Great in BE 2430/CE 1887. It was located at Wat Mahadhatu, formerly known as “Mahadhatuvidyalaya”.

Mahadhatuvidyalaya offered classes of studies for the first time in BE 2432/CE1889. Later on, King Chulalongkorn gave it the new name as “Mahachulalongkornrajavidyalaya” on 13 September, BE 2439/CE 1896 with the purpose to establish a major institute of Buddhist Higher Education for Buddhist monks, novices and laypeople with the emphasis on Buddhist Studies as its main subjects.

To fulfill His Majesty’s intention, Phrabimaladhamma (Choy Danadattamahathera), the late abbot of Wat Mahadhatyuvaratrangsarit called for a meeting of 57 senior monks from Mahanikaya sect on 9 January, BE 2490/CE1947 with the purpose to promote Buddhist Education on the Tipitaka and higher Education for undergraduate level.

For over 50 years of Buddhist Education, Mahachaulalongkornrajavidyalaya University has provided graduates with deep knowledge in Buddhist teaching and academic service to society. As the University had provided quality graduates to work for society, nation and religion, therefore, in BE 2540/CE 1997, the government passed the bill to the parliament to legislate the Act of Parliament of Mahachulalongkornrajavidyalaya University as the government university.
