Bharat Bhawan is a multi-arts complex of unparalleled excellence, which was inaugurated on 13th February 1982 by the then Prime Minister of India, Mrs. Indira Gandhi. It was established and financed by the Government of Madhya Pradesh, and is run by an autonomous trust. Designed by architect Charles Correa, this building houses a museum, an art gallery, a workshop and more.  

Set up to create an interactive proximity among verbal, visual and performing arts, Bharat Bhawan is a thriving centre for contemporary arts. The main entrance of this building is marked by a series of terraced gardens that can be seen cascading down to the Upper Lake. Visitors can enter the building at the highest level and walk down the pedestrian spine flanked by a pattern of courtyards in order to reach various parts of the complex.

Different units of Bharat Bhawan include Roopankar (museum of fine arts), Rangmandal (a repertory), Antrang (an indoor theatre) and Bahirang (an outdoor theatre). Vagarth (a centre of Indian poetry), Anhad (a library of classical and folk music) and an art gallery are among other major establishments within the complex. There is also an Ashram which serves as the residence for guest artists. Tourists can reach the complex by bus or auto.
