Location


The Adivasi Academy is located in Tejgadh, a tribal village situated 90 kms east of Vadodara city in the state of Gujarat, India. The campus of the Academy is situated on a beautiful 10 acre piece of land at the foot of the Koraj Hill. An archaeological site containing pre-historic rock paintings, dating back to 10000 BC, and a medieval fortification belonging to the fifteenth century, within walking distance of the Campus, have given the location of the Academy a special feel of a heritage venue. In the background off the campus is the majestic Koraj hill, full of craggy-rocks and entirely unpopulated. The buildings, all created in exposed brick and brick-jaalis, are designed by architect Karan Grover, combining features of local architecture and historical monuments found in the area.
