O heart of mine, awake in this holy place of pilgrimage.

Peace to Inner Heart.

The Tourist Spot

Rabindranath Tagore first visited Shantiniketan in 1873, when he was 12 years old. In 1888, Debendranath dedicated the entire property to the establishment of a Brahmavidyalaya through a trust deed. In 1901, Rabindranath started a Brahmacharya ashrama, which came to be known as Patha Bhavana from 1925. In 1913, Rabindranath Tagore won the Nobel Prize in Literature. It was a new feather in the cap of the Tagore family, which was the leading family contributing to the enrichment of life and society in Bengal in many fields of activity over a long period of time. Founded in 1921 by Rabindranath Tagore, Visva-Bharati was declared a Central University and an Institute of National Importance in 1951.
