Kalakshetra is a cultural academy dedicated to the preservation of traditional values in Indian art, especially in the field of Bharatanatyam dance and Gandharvaveda music. The academy was founded in January 1936 by Rukmini Devi Arundale along with her husband Dr. George Arundale, a well known theosophist. Under Rukmini Devi Arundale's guidance the institution achieved national and international recognition for its unique style and perfection. In 1962, Kalakshetra moved to a new campus in Besant Nagar, Chennai, India, occupying 40 hectares (99 acres) of land in the city.

In January 1994, an Act of the Indian Parliament recognised the Kalakshetra Foundation as an 'Institute of National Importance'
Rukmini Devi not only invited the best of students, but also brilliant & noted teachers, musicians and artists to be a part of this great institution.
Please have a look at some of captivating photographs of the tranquil, soul elevating campus of this instituition, which has always been a hallmark of excellence  in the rich cultural heritage of India since its inception in 1936:
