On this day in 1910, Vishwanath Kashinath Rajwade & Sardar K. C. Mehendale founded Bharat Itihas Sanshodhak Mandal, at Poona.
The main objective behind setting up the Mandal was to provide ready resources to the historians & researchers, to save their time and to motivate them.
Rajwade conceived this idea long back but could not fulfill it until Sardar Mehendale met him and on his own expressed his readiness to support him for anything that he wished to do for the betterment of history.

The Mandal was initially established
at Sardar Mehendale’s place at Appa Balwant Chowk in Pune & later moved to its present place at Sadashivpeth.
To commence the activity Rajwade read an essay in the presence of the only listener Sardar Mehendale.
Presently, the Mandal maintains more than 15,00,000 historical
papers and 30,000 scripts mainly in Marathi, Kannada, Persian, Portuguese and English languages. Moreover, it has also preserved over 4,000 coin (some as old as 200 BC), 1,000 paintings and a few sculptures and inscriptions in its well equipped museum.
The Mandal’s library keeps
more than 27,000 books written mainly in Marathi and English which can be available to the researchers for free reading or for a nominal fee on ‘Take Home’ basis. These resources hold sizeable volumes on the history of Maratha Empire, Maratha culture and Marathi literature.
They also contain a large collection of the material on British Rule as well as Mughal Rule over India. The Mandal issues a Quarterly Journal called ‘Trai-Masik’ wherein essays and articles on new discoveries are presented. It has also published books written and edited by
veteran historians and reports of annual conferences and historians' meets. The Mandal periodically organises lectures, workshops, training, seminars and study tours for the young researchers and historians.
