Completed in 1996, Gyan Sarovar, meaning ‘Lake of Knowledge’, is also known as the Academy for a Better World. It is the second campus built by the Brahma Kumaris in Mt Abu, Rajasthan. Gyan Sarovar stands as a modern village-style complex in the quiet rural setting near close to the Pandav Bhawan complex. Facilities include an auditorium that can seat 1600 people, 14 seminar and training rooms, and accommodation for up to 1500 people. Thousands of fruit trees have been planted in and around the complex. The campus incorporates several environmentally sustainable features including solar water heating for bathing, a solar array that generates steam for cooking and a hybrid wind-solar-diesel system.
