Bird's Eye view of Arikutara

        It is a tender plant engrossing folk culture. It is a dazzling pond with history and tradition. It is a rich vein unveiling solid knowledge. It is the home land of culture blossomed after constant study. It is a land of religious work shop. It is our proud Chamarajanagar. However, nowadays we see only negative approaches in this flourishing land. Perhaps many of the people are unaware of its greatness. It was the sacred place of Ganagas of Kalyani, Chalukyas, Cholas, Hoysalas, Vijayanagara Kings, Wodeyars of Mysore, Palegaras of Ummattur, Nayakas of Kalale, Nandyalas etc. It is the beautiful place of a host of poets like Neelakantacharya, Vijayananda, Siddalingayathi, Shruthakeerthi, Padmarasa, Poojyapaada, Devachandra, Immadi Shivabasava Swamy, Prabhushankara, P.S. Ramanujam, K.C. Shivappa besides the 2nd generation poets like Maleyuru Guruswamy, Mudnakudu Chinnaswamy etc. Formerly, Chamarajanagar was called Arikutara before 1818. It is named after Chamaraja Wodeyar, the father of Krishnaraja Wodeyar III who was born here in 1776. The marvelous Chamarajeshwara Temple was built in 1828. The Railway service was provided in 1926. It was upgraded as district in 1997 during the tenure of Sri J.H. Patel, former Chief Minister of Karnataka. Inspite of having strong historical foot steps it is lagging behind in education and failed to provide particularly value based education. There were few private schools but insufficient to cater the educational needs of growing population. There has been increasing desire for value based education against mechanical and just mark oriented education. Even the veteran philosopher, educationist Swamy Vivekananda also disapproved the western system of Education. As the society look forward to impart that education which would mould our children into concrete, national conscious and patriotic. There blossomed our Vishwa Hindu Parishad – Sevabharathi institutions in 1986.
