Dr. Sree Sree Shivakumara Swamigalu established Sree Siddaganga Education Society during 1963. Revered Swamiji feels that the world is on the brink of disaster and only two group of persons can save the world, Ideal mother and Ideal Teachers. Only such persons can produce future citizens who can reform the demoralized society and preserve human values. Therefore, the responsibilities of the teaching community is instrumental. They are the architects of the nation and torch bearers of civilization. Education for character building is the need of the hour and it was the fervent desire of His Holiness to start good college of education to prepare quality teachers to function at the secondary school level.
With this ambition, His Holiness Dr. Sree Sree Shivakumara Swamigalu started Sree Siddaganga College of Education in the year 1972.
The Society takes pride that the outgoing students of its institutions have all found successful career placements and a large number of them are positioned in Government Jobs. Since 1963, the activity growth of the Society is truly phenomenal. This has been possible mainly due to the strong conviction, clarity of vision, determined plan of action, dedicated band of people and down-to-earth approach of the management.
The devotees and well wishers of Sree Siddaganga Math resided in Tumkur town and neighbouring districts were very ambitious to start an Engineering college in Tumkur under the blessings and Presidentship of Dr. Sree Sree Shivakumara Swamigalu, President, Sree Siddaganga Math during the year 1961-62.
The Rev. Sree Sree Shivakumaraswamiji was already running a well known Sanskrit college in Sree Siddaganga Math and few high Schools and other educational institutions in Tumkur and around.
In view of the heavy pressure from the devotees and philanthropic persons the Rev. Swamiji made up his mind to start an Engineering college in Tumkur City although the funds position of Sree Siddaganga Math was not sound enough to start Engineering college in Tumkur during 1962-63.
Since, from the starting of Sree Siddaganga Education Society during 1963 the institution under it have been added one by one and now the total number of educational institutions running under Sree Siddaganga Education Society are 124 in total, which includes an Engineering College, a Polytechnic College, Pharmacy, Nursing, PU Colleges, College for Women, Diploma in Education, ITI colleges and High schools across the state of Karnataka.
The vision of Dr. Sree Sree Shivakumara Mahashivayogi of providing quality education has been carried forward by His Holiness Sree Siddalinga Swamiji the present President of Sree Siddaganga Math.
Although, the Sree Math is running all types of educational institutions the public, devotees, alumni and well-wishers strongly felt that there is a need of medical services in the list of services being offered by Sree Siddaganga Math. They have been strongly beseeching with His Holiness to start the medical college and hospital so that the people get the benefits of health services. Hence Siddaganga Medical college and research institute was established in the year 2022-23.
