Indian Military Academy, located in Dehradun, became functional from 1st October 1932. It is situated at a distance of around 8 km from the main city, on Dehradun-Chakrata Road. Initially, it started with a batch of 40 Cadets. The first commandant of this academy was Brigadier L.P. Collins.
In order to establish Indian Military Academy, the government acquired the former Railway College of Dehradun. Popularly known as Chetwode Building, the academy was named after Field Marshal Sir Philip Chetwode. He was the Commander-in-Chief of India at the time of establishment of the Indian Military Academy. In addition, he was the one who inaugurated this academy.
At present, there are several attractions located within this academy that attract travellers. Museum, War Memorial, Shooting Demonstration Room and 18-holes FRIMS Golf Course are some of the attractions located within the Indian Military Academy.
