Uniqueness

Sampradaayam is constituted to become a National Centre for Patronizing Fine Arts, following the ideal of the great institution in India, Smt. Rukmini Devi Arundale’s kalakshetra, Chennai.

The Guru and sishya live in the same campus surrounded with pure green rustic nature along with huge cashew trees and the process of intensive learning begins with the melodious chirping of birds in the early hours, cows grazing and other soothing sounds of nature.

The Uniqueness of Sampradaayam lies in its ancient Gurukula System of teaching earnest students.
