Krishnamurti Study Centre Sahyadri

Located in the picturesque valley of the Bhima River, the Krishnamurti Study Centre Sahyadri is an integral part of the Sahyadri Education Centre of Krishnamurti Foundation India. It is built on a hilltop plateau of the Tiwai hill, 25 km as the bird flies from Bhima Shankar — the source of the Bhima River, in a remote hamlet in interior Maharashtra. A winding road takes one up to the Study Centre. In the distances are the Sahyadri Mountain ranges. The landscape and the climate make for an ideal place for a retreat and an inward exploration.

The Study Centre campus has 12 cottages for visitors stay, and an office where Krishnamurti’s books are available for sale. To study the Teachings, there is a hall with unique architectural design shaped like a twelve-petal lotus. The hall serves as the main library which contains books of Krishnamurti and audio-videos of his recorded talks. The building exudes serenity and serves an atmosphere for deep inquiry.


The Retreats

The intention of all these retreats is for the Self Study – to inquire, to observe, and understand oneself: the things, the people, the ideas, and the world around us.

The Study Centre Campus

The Krishnamurti Study Centre Sahyadri is situated on a plateau on the top of a hill about 70 km away from the city of Pune, off Pune-Nasik Road, in the Bhima River Valley.

The campus, which is common to both the Sahyadri School and the Study Centre is 26 km from Rajgurunagar (Khed) off the Pune-Nasik Road. Rajgurunagar is connected by buses, taxis and other means of public transport to and from Pune which is linked by air directly to Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore, Delhi and other cities. Pune is also linked to all the major cities of India by railway.

When you come to Rajgurunagar, follow the road to the village called Wada. The Krishnamurti Study Centre is about 4 km before Wada and is located on the top of Tiwai Hill 1 KM after the villege Gundalwadi. Signposts for the Sahyadri School have been put at two locations along this road.

Arrangements for pick-up from Pune or Rajgurunagar can be made for the visitors on payment and with sufficient advance notice.
