About Us


Founded in 1938, by Dr. K M Munshi, Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan is an intellectual, cultural and educational movement dedicated to the twin tasks of interpreting the age old yet ageless message of our country and of integrating our varied and vibrant culture with the changing needs of the present day world.

During the eight decades of its existence the Bhavan has come to be recognized as a symbol of India’s glorious past and as a comprehensive national institution with an international outlook touching all facets of life and enriching all spheres of activity.

Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan conducts classes from Kindergarten to post-graduate research and imparts education in subjects ranging from Carnatic Music to Computers, from Sanskrit to Business Management and from Yoga to Journalism.
