about vishvabharti campus

Vishvabharti Campus is a public central university, especially well known because of its association with the famous Bengali polymath - Rabindranath Tagore (Gurudeb).  Tagore founded this university in the year 1901 and named it Vishva Bharati, which means communion with the world. It was later given the status of University post independence, and renamed as Vishva Bharati University.

The incredible pull that students worldwide have felt for Tagore and this school needs no explanation. You will find people from all over the world with various interests (realtors, painters, scholars, language enthusiasts etc.) coming here to add to their knowledge and experience. A tour of the campus is a must for those who are looking for an enriching experience. The outside world seems to fade away as the life in the campus encloses you in a different world of its own.

Some places not to be missed are Chhatimtala (a tree under which the idea of having such a place blossomed), Shantiniketan Griha (where Tagor spent his childhood), Upasana Griha (an eye catching prayer hall), Amro Kunjo (open-air classrooms with students dressed in canary yellow garbs) and the Chaiti ( an incredible mud-house structure that attracts tourists in hordes), apart from many others.
