Visit Campus

International Headquarters of the TS
President
Mr Tim Boyd

Body

Welcome entering into the sacred surroundings of Nature and the Headquarters of the Theosophical Society (TS). It has had a significant meaning and influence since its Founders first arrived here in 1882.

We have only four requests

  1. Respect and observe the flora and fauna by letting them be in their natural existence. No plugging of flowers. No hanging from the trees.
  2. Help us to keep the place clean. We have dustbins all around the campus.
  3. Listen the silence in you and around you when walking on the paths calmly, without rushing.
  4. Capture Nature with your eyes and ears. Commercial or social (weddings, parties etc) photographing is not allowed.
