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

Aikya Keralam Thampuran, Maharaja of the erstwhile Kingdom of Cochin, the founder of the college


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 approached His Highness Aikya Keralam Thampuran, the then Maharajah of Kochi who allowed free use of the Merry Lodge Palace and the naming of the college after His Highness, Sree Kerala Varma College.

A grant of one lakh rupees and 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. The college was initially under the Madras University but is now managed by Cochin Devaswom Board, an autonomous organization under the government of Kerala.[5]
