Rabindranath Tagore National Anthem : Jana Gana Mana

The College was founded on the 19th July, 1915 through the pioneering efforts of
Dr.Annie Wood Besant and the noble band of Theosophical workers who came under her
inspiration especially her paternal uncle Prof. Ernest Wood. It was originally named
as Woods National College. The event will always be remembered as a land mark in
the history of Rayalaseema as the College was at that time, the only institution
to cater to the needs of higher education in this region. It also brought the people
of the area into closer contact with international programs for the propagation of
culture and spiritual ideals of the Theosophical Society and also the National movement
for political liberation under the inspiration of Dr.Annie Besant. After the demise
of Dr.Annie Besant it was named as Besant Theosophical College as a mark of gratitude
to this great soul. It was originally managed by the Theosophical Educational Trust
which later renamed as Besant Centenary Trust.
