Bhāratīya Vidyā Bhavan

Quick Reference

The Bhavan was founded in India in 1938 by Dr. K. M. Munshi to revive and preserve Indian art, culture, and education from a perspective of secular, Gandhian universalism. It now has over a hundred branches in India as well as four abroad (in New York, Lisbon, Mexico City, and London—the oldest and largest), all running programmes of cultural and educational events, and issuing publications.
