Swami Vivekananda visited Belgaum in October 1892, he was an unknown monk on tour of India then.

This documentary sheds light on the available details of his visit through authentic sources. But the focus is on the people who met him here, who were these people?

How did they meet Swamiji? We’ve tried to chronicle their stories.

In short, it is a fine slice of Belgaum’s history during that time. I would like to thank the research wing of Ramakrishna Mission Ashram, Belagavi.
