Sree Kerala Varma College is situated in Thrissur City of Kerala State, India. It was founded on 11 August 1947 by Rama Varma XV, the Maharaja of erstwhile Kochi State.[1][2][3][4]


History[edit]

The idea of starting a new college at Thrissur city 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 Rama Varma XV, the then Maharajah of Kochi. 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.
