At the start of the twentieth century there were four medical colleges (at Calcutta, Madras, Bombay and Lahore) in then undivided India, and 22 medical schools called the Temple Medical schools. The one in Patna was established in 1874. These schools were named after Sir Richard Temple who joined the Bengal Civil Services in 1846 and went on to become Lieutenant-Governor of Bengal and later Governor of Bombay. To commemorate the 1921 visit of prince of Wales (later king Edward VIII, who then abdicated) to Patna, it was decided to upgrade the medical school to a college and so it was renamed Prince of Wales Medical college when it opened formally in 1927.
