History of Shantiniketan

The institution was initially an Ashram set up by Maharishi Devendranath Tagore in 1863. His son, Rabindranath experimented with a tiny class of five students in 1901, and Shantiniketan evolved into the Vishva Bharati University. The range of studies is wide, with an emphasis on art, music, dance and the humanities.
