Vishwashanti Sangeet Academy has been formed and designed keeping the concept of realizing divinity and serenity through music and art in mind. It also aims at exhibiting, demonstrating and educating about original musical instruments from nearly 160 nations of the world. It is a matter of great pride that this gigantic monument is located in Rajbaug, the land once owned by great late Shri Raj Kapoor and now it is owned by the MAEER’s MIT Group of Institutions, Pune. It was the wish of the legendary actor, Raj Kapoor, that this land should be used for academic and educational purposes.

Prior to this institution, visitors would come here just to see Raj Kapoor’s farmhouse and the places where some of his films were shot, but now the humungous Sangeeet Academy gives more meaning to this place. Along with being an amazing spot for some peace and tranquility, it is also a great institution for those who want to build a career in the field of classical music, making it an absolute must visit.
