The Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan’s purpose is to preserve for posterity the tradition of Indian art and culture. The Bhavan was founded in Mumbai, India in 1938 and there are more than a 100 branches of the Bhavan in India.
The UK Bhavan was the first independent overseas branch and it is also the largest institute for Indian art and culture outside India.
The Bhavan teachings closely follow those of Mahatma Gandhi. In the light of this philosophy, the Bhavan is a secular, non-political organisation open to all regardless off race, creed or sexual orientation. We have a fully articulated equal opportunities policy.
