Karnataka Samskrit University

Karnataka Samskrit University was established in 2010 by the Government of Karnataka for exclusive development of Samskrit language. Samskrit language which was greatly encouraged by the kings of Mysore has a great contribution in the area of Prose, Poetry, Drama, Dance, Sculpture, Paintings, Fine arts, Medicines, Philosophy and other allied areas. It is far more extensive and lasting than has been realised by the Indian scholars till today.

The Karnataka Samskrit University was established with the vision and mission of bringing Veda and Samskrit pathsahalas together under a single umbrella. It also aimed at maintaining uniformity in education, providing greater opportunities for study for students and teachers and to raise the standards in Samskrit research at National and International level.

There are also 243 aided Veda and Samskrita Pathashalas spread over the state. The university currently includes 2 constituent Samskrit Colleges, 10 aided affiliated colleges and 9 unaided affiliated colleges under its ambit. It has established the Directorate of Samskrit Education, to take care of Pre-university education in Karnataka. The directorate includes 354 recognised Samskrita pathashalas throughout the state.

  1. Teaching Wing
