JSS History

Economically prosperous Nanjangud Town was educationally backward. This educational backwardness of the people made them unable to cope up with modernization. Some people had the ability to go to far off Mysore, for education purpose, but it was not a mass movement. Allama Prabhu stated that – A human being can literate himself through knowledge rather than his work. Knowledge is the essence. His Holiness Jagadguru Sri. Shivarathri Rajendra Mahaswamiji realized that only when we universalize knowledge we will be in a situation to face and to know about tradition and Modernization.

          Parama poojya Jagadguru was deeply moved by the illiteracy which was prevailing in Nanjangud Taluk.  Sanyasi means renouncement of everything and his main aim is to gain Mukthi. But our Jagadguru set aside his individual liberation and strived to literate the world. The result of his thought was his decision to establish a Pre-University and Degree college at Nanjangud. This came to reality on the 1st of July 1968. The college was started at kanakadasa Hostel building near Nanjangud bus stand which was taken for rent. In the first year the admissions were given only in the Arts combination with an enrollment of only 27 students. Later in 1969-70 Science and Commerce combinations were included in the PU College. In 1970-71 B.Com and in 1973-74 B.Sc classes commenced. Presently we have 523 students in PU and 581 students studying in various degree classes.

          In the year 1970 the palace building of Nanjangud Town was bought by Rajaguru Thilaka Sri. Shivarathri Rajendra Mahaswamiji and the college was shifted to the new premises and the classes were conducted for nearly 40 years in the same premises. The college celebrated its Silver Jubilee in the year 1993 and now its fast approaching its Golden Jubilee. On December 22, 1993 the college celebrated its Silver Jubilee function in the presence and blessings of His Holiness Sri Shivarathri Deshikendra Mahaswamiji.

          In the year 2007 with the foresight and blessing of His Holiness Jagadguru Sri. Shivarathri Deshikendra Mahaswamiji the college was shifted to the well established building at Deveeramannahally in the outskirts of Nanjangud. The college campus is about 13.17 acres and the building is spread across 5 acres. The estimated cost of this building is 6 Crores.
