Ancient Indian Arts and Science is a subject which now attracts not only students of history, but also people from various walks of life. From artists, designers, architects to journalists, writers and scientists.

Those who could not take Ancient Indian Culture as their subject of study for graduation, still crave for knowledge of Ancient India and join various courses about Indian mythology, Vedas, Yoga etc. We offer special course in Ancient Indian Arts and Sciences to such people.

We want to attract people who for some reason were alienated from Indian Culture along with students persueing other disciplines or careers. Visits to Museums and other culturally important sites will make this course very attractive.
