HISTORY OF BHARATHI VIDYA BHAVAN
The Bharathi Vidya Bhavan, the epitome of learning, the icon of Erode, is located near Thindal Murugan temple, Erode. While the city of Erode was filled with fragrance of turmeric, BVB was constituted in 1978 in order to quench the people’s thirst of knowledge.
The beginning of BVB commenced in 1978 under a thatched shed and now our Bharathians reside every where around the globe ornamenting several colourful feathers in the cap of Bharathi Vidya Bhavan.
