Srimanmaharaja Samskrita Graduation and Post Graduation Centre is located in the city of Mysore, famed as the cultural capital of Karnataka.

Sri Rangacharlu, and His Highness Krishnaraja Wodeyar IV encouraged the growth and development of the pathashala. Initially, two teachers were appointed for the study of tarka and vyakarana shastras. Later, study of Rigveda and Yajurveda was added. Today, the college boasts of 14 departments, and has over 500 students.During the initial years, examinations for students were being conducted during the Navaratri celebrations, by a scholarly committee in the presence of the Maharaja of Mysore himself. Successful students were felicitated by the Maharaja. After 1917, a Samskrit examination board was established for conducting the examinations. In 1950, administration of the college was taken over by the Government of Karnataka.The college produces consistently good results in the examinations.
