The UK Bhavan was the first independent overseas branch and it is also
the largest institute for Indian art and culture outside India.

archaeology and yoga. Some nine hundred students attend our courses
during the year. Courses are taught at different leverls – open,
diploma (5 years) and master. Individual training is available in
order to advance students to the highest levels. We are associated
