Sree Kerala Varma College is located in Thrissur of Kerala State, India. It was founded in 1947 by Kerala Varma, the Maharaja of erstwhile Kochi State. The college was initially under the Madras University. Now it is affiliated to the University of Calicut.

The college on the outskirts of the city of Thrissur has been a centre of liberal and socially responsible thought and activity for the 60 years of its history. The college is a leading educational institution in Kerala State. It has about 2200 students on its rolls in 16 under graduate and 8 post graduate courses, with 105 members of teaching staff and more than 54 members of non-teaching staff.

The motto "Asthu Vrittam Subham Sada" ( Pure be My Life for Ever) envisaged by the former Maharaja of Cochin, is the vision, leading light and constant source of inspiration. The college endeavours to preserve the best traditions of liberal higher education, ensuring full freedom of expression to encounter multifarious ideological preoccupations. In both curricular and co- curricular activities the college aims at bringing out the best talents of the students.

The college has taken up the mission with full commitment to bring up the students hailing from semi urban and rural areas, with poor socio economic backgrounds, on a par with those from better endowed urban areas. The college seeks to make the students competent to face the challenges of modern world with full confidence and social commitment.



The idea of starting a new college at Thrissur originated from a committee of prominent citizens of Thrissur, in response to strong public demand. The members of the committee armed with the moral support of the public besides a few promises of financial backing approached "His Highness" the then Maharajah of Cochin to enlist "His Highness" sympathy and blessing for the venture. "His Highness" in his turn was gracious enough to allow free use of the Merry Lodge Palace and the naming of the college as after "His Highness", "Sree Kerala Varma College". A free grant of one lakh rupees from the Devaswom funds together with a loan of four lakhs towards capital expenditure and a free grant of two hundred and fifty candies of timber were sanctioned by "His Highness". Greatly inspired and heartened by this magnificent gesture of "His Highness" the committee began to collect funds and completed all arrangements for opening the college on August 11, 1947. As years rolled by, the college has grown and expanded considerably on a secure basis as a full fledged first grade instituition providing instructions in almost all the courses of study and occupying the pride of place as the biggest College under the Calicut University.[1]
