Introduction  

The origin of K.B.P.G. College, Mirzapur is shrouded in the dim pre-history of certain school wits, intellectual's elder statesman, renowned lawyers and established businessmen, who were quite grieved to think of having no college in the city that can provide higher education to the students of Mirzapur. The real dream of our visionary founder was to implant an institution of higher education whose aim and objective was to promote skill & produce young people who are intellectually sound, morally upright, socially committed and economically self reliant, It was with this unflinching commitment that Late Shri Gayanath Agrawal, the then devout teacher of a peculiar instinct, in his stimulating speech galvanized all Managers, Principals, educated colleagues and citizens of Mirzapur to contemplate over this road unexplored and daunting. This Herculean task was finally welcomed by the Managing Committee and Trustees of Basant College, who in their written indenture on 10-07-1956 declared to donate a well built central building and campus of around 3.5 Acre area for establishment of K.B. Degree College.

The Governing body of the Degree college association, Mirzapur feeling the desirability of opening a degree college started inviting donation of movables and immovable type from the bankers, merchants, landlords and education loving citizen of Mirzapur.

Shree Bhairo Prsad Jaiswal S/o Late Fakir Ram Jaiswal R/o Ganeshganj, Mirzapur invited the Governing body of Mirzapur degree college association on 13.03.1957 and in a written indenture pledged the whole of the stone built house situated in Ganeshganj, Mirzapur (in which the District planning and other Govt. Offices were functioning) the then cost of building was around 60000/- which was another land mark in the college history. The said premises are now in possession of faculty of education (B.Ed.) of KBPG College.

In meeting out the infrastructural and financial need of the college, the selfless support of Smt. Gulabi Devi W/o Late Sri Narottam Das Agrawal can not be ignored. She was quite moved by the unfaltering effort of her cousin Babu Gayanath Agrawal, the then secretary and willingly pledged and open land of around 06 Bigha located at Bhatwa Ki Pokhari Mirzapur, and thus removed all those difficulties failing which K.B. Degree College may not have come into existence. For upliftment and growth of Sanskrit Education, the financial Asst. of Rs. 25000/- by Smt. Sundari Devi w/o Late Sri Kanahaya Lal Agrawal the Elder brother of Sri Basant Lal Agrawal is quite commendable

 
About Mirzapur  

Mirzapur is a city in the heart of North India, nearly 650 km between Delhi and Kolkata and also equidistant from Allahabad and Varanasi. Located in the state of Uttar Pradesh, Mirzapur has a population of a little over 205,264 (2001 census) and is renowned for its famous carpet and brassware industry. It is a city with several spots around it including many hills such as Rajdari, Devdari, Lakhaniyadari, and Windom fall range and Sirshi. It is the headquarter of Mirzapur District.

The important place of Mirzapur is Vindhyachal. This place is better known for pilgrimage. The religious place consists of temples like Vindhyavasini Devi temple, Asht Bhuja temple, Bhairav Kund, Kaali Khoh temple. Asht Bhuja has mythological background dating back to the period of Lord Krishna. This temple is dedicated to Goddess Maha Saraswati. Kaali Khoh temple is dedicated to the Goddess Kali. This temple has a mouth-shaped opening to enter the cave and pay homage to the deity.

The city is of immense historical importance. On the outskirts of Mirzapur i.e., at Lakhania Dari one can find ancient paintings on walls. The rock-cut caves here are decorated with primitive paintings and line-drawing scenes. These are indications of the city being inhabited by primitive man. The paintings have a connection with the famous rock-cut paintings of Cogul (Spain). These caves affirm that Mirzapur was a hub for the earliest cultural development in the East. Microliths and pottery of stone ages depict that this place is one of the oldest inhabited places of the world.

On the outskirts is an ancient town, Chunar which is famous for its fort. The fort was established by the king of Ujjain named Vikramaditya. The main attractions of the fort are Sonva Mandap, Raja Bhartihari Samadhi, Bavan Khamba and Solar watch. The place could be reached through Babatpur airport (Varanasi). Shakteshgarh fort which lay 28 kms from Chunar, is now in ruins, but one can find natural beauty surrounding the area. Jirgo dam also could be reached through Chunar as it is only 14 kms from Chunar.
