The Thiruvananthapuram Kendra of Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, commenced functioning in February 1986, is one of the major Kendras of Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan. It runs the following institutions:
1. Bhavan's Senior Secondary School, Kodunganoor.
2. Bhavan's Vivekananda Vidya Mandir Senior Secondary School, Manvila.
3. Bhavan's Kulapati K.M. Munshi Memorial Vidya Mandir, Poojappura,
4. Bhavan's College of Communication and Management (a constituent of Rajendra Prasad Institute of Communication and Management, Mumabi) Thiruvananthapuram.
The Kendra in collaboration with Infosys Foundation and Bangalore Kendra Organizes Cultural Outreach programme for supporting rural artists and to revive extinct art forms of Kerala. The Kendra is the nodal centre for implementing the programs since 2012.
As a unique venture the Kendra has been conducting 'News for Use', a general awareness test for Teachers to promote News paper reading habits among teachers and then pass on such information on a regular basis to students. All Kerala Bhavan's Tests for Bhavan's Schools have been conducted successfully for 2 years and our attempt to have an all India Test could not succeed due to pandemic.
An ambitious construction activity for providing an Auditorium (1000 capacity) and a Nursery block at BVB Manvila is progressing well. We have a social responsibility fund which supports children from financially poor families.

Cultural Festival

The 2nd Festival of Culture, named after its theme ‘Panchabhootha’ and held at the new Auditorium in Manvila School, was an event that truly epitomised the rich blend of our cultural heritage.
On January 5, 2024, the festival was inaugurated by the erstwhile princess, Aswathy Thirunal Gauri Lakshmi Bayi of the Travancore royal family. It was followed by the energetic blend of dance and music by the students of Manvila School. The highlight of the evening was a captivating Kathakali performance by Margi, bringing to life the beautiful scenes leading to Damayanthi’s Swayamvaram from the Nalacharitham.
Chakyar Koothu, Vadya Vrinda, Thayambaka, Songkran Festival (a vibrant Thai cultural representation), Seethankan Thullal, Nangiar Koothu, Koodiyattam, Kummatti Kali, Bharata Natyam and the dynamic Kerala Natanam—these performances, steeped in tradition, left the audience in awe of the finesse and depth of our dance heritage.
The festival culminated with a breathtaking performance by the Regatta Natya Sangeetha Kendra, symbolising the five elements (earth, water, fire, air and space), providing a grand conclusion to the week-long celebrations. In addition to these performances, concurrent events like the Book Exhibition and Clay Modelling Workshop were a source of great enrichment.
This festival was not just a celebration of art forms; it was a journey through our cultural ethos, reminding us of the richness and diversity of our heritage.


We are sorry to inform you about the sad demise of Shri Premachandra Kurup IAS (Retd.), former Chairman, Bhavan’s Thiruvananthapuram Kendra on February 7, 2024. He was 75.
The Kendra acknowledges and remembers his contributions during his association with Bhavan for more than a decade.
May God give strength to his family to bear this loss and may his soul rest in eternal peace.
