Diamond Jubilee Institute

Diamond Jubilee InstituteIn 1938, Maharaja Sayajirao Gaekwad III celebrated Diamond Jubilee, finishing 60 years of ruling. The people of Baroda collected money for it. After celebrating, still amount of Rs 1 crore was left, so the celebration committee decided to make an vocational training institute.

People who didn’t had money to educate, the institute was built, which was known as Diamond Jubilee Institute. The institute was also given donation of Rs 1 crore more by Maharaja Pratapsinhrao Gaekwad.
