The History

After celebrating a memorable and incomparable 'Maha Mahotsav' of 21 days as the Mahant of Shri Swaminarayan Temple-Junagadh, Rev. Sadguru Shastriji Maharaj Shri Dharmajivandasji Swami went on pilgrimage on foot to various ancient religious places on the Himalayas. Seeing Gurukul and Saints imparting Sanskrit and Religious education to young students, he remembered the message of Bhagwan Shri Swaminarayan for spreading 'Sadvidya' all over the world. There he got inner inspiration to start some constructive and serviceful activities based on the broad and benevolent messages of Bhagwan Shri Swaminarayan. Coming back to Saurashtra he established Shri Swaminarayan Gurukul in the independence year of India i.e. in 1947-48 at Rajkot.

The highly reputed poet and ideal teacher late Shri Tribhuvanbhai Vyas gave encouragement and also devoted services from the beginning. Rev. Purani Swami Shri Premprakashdasji also gave valuable and appreciable contribution for the service activities of Gurukul.
