A view of the gardens of the Adyar Theosophical societyThe Theosophy Society - Adyar is the name of a section of the Theosophical Society founded by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky and others in 1875. Its headquarters moved with Blavatsky and president Henry Steel Olcott to Adyar, an area of Chennai in 1883. The designation 'Adyar' is added to clarify that this is the Theosophical Society with headquarters there, after William Quan Judge were separated by Besant and formed his own organization, known as the "Theosophical Society - Pasadena" with its International Headquarters in Pasadena, California.

The Theosophical Society was officially formed in New York City, United States, in November 1875 by Helena Blavatsky, Henry Steel Olcott, William Quan Judge and others.
After a few years Olcott and Blavatsky moved to India and established the International Headquarters at Adyar, in Madras (Chennai).
The original organisation led by Olcott and Annie Besant remains today based in India and is known as the Theosophical Society - Adyar.
