Beautiful University in India
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham(University) as the name suggests has a lot of people studying from different parts of India and also people from different parts of world (exchange students). The academic infrastructure is well and good, supported by lots of faculties and laboratories. Also the curriculum gives an outlook about spirituality and there are spiritual gatherings...
