Bhogilal Leherchand Institute of IndologyThe Bhogilal Leherchand Institute of Indology, a premier Institution of International repute, was first started at Patan (North Gujarat) in the year 1980, through the funds provided by the family trust of Bhogilal Family to sponsor and promote research in Jainology/Indology and other aspects of Indian culture.

The setting up of the Institute was inspired by Late Rev. Sri Vijay Vallabhsuriji, who laid emphasis on education as the only means to dispel the darkness of ignorance from the mind of the people. Later on, in 1984 at the inspiration of Rev. Sadhvi Sri Mrigawatiji, the Institute was shifted to Delhi with the active support of Sri Atma Vallabh Jain Smarak Shikshan Nidhi. Since then the Institute as a unique centre of excellence for Jainological and allied subjects in Indology, is working in the complex of the SMARAK.
