Welcome to 
Gurukul Dhrupad Sansthan 

The Gurukul is an inclusive space for students from diverse socio-economic and cultural backgrounds to pursue Dhrupad comfortably, without hindrance. The aim of the Gundecha Brothers has been to promote, propagate and preserve Dhrupad, the oldest form of music in India, that forms a part of the nation’s rich Cultural Heritage. Dhrupad Sansthan was inaugurated by Bharat Ratna Pt. Bhimsen Joshi on November 4th, 2004. Its most recent hostel “Ustad Zakiruddin Khan Sadharini Niwas” was inaugurated by Ustad Zakir Hussain.


Staying true to their vision of upholding the principles of the Guru-shishya parampara, Gurukul Dhrupad Sansthan Bhopal, does not provide any degree courses. All the students at the Gurukul are taught individually, thus receiving ample opportunity to nurture their own individual strengths and potential to the maximum possible extent.
