Mahaswamigal Museum

It is not a Museum, it is a temple.

Mahaswamigal Museum has hundreds of rarest of the rare pictures, which have captured, albeit briefly, of his times, his life, his devotion, his selfless service to the humanity, his simplicity, his rare vision and his teachings. He was an inspiration, an epitome of learning and wisdom with which he captured every heart – from the mightiest to the weakest.

Mahaswamigal’s missions on the values of life and vedic education have inspired us to create this museum. This is a temple of learning, which would inspire the young and old alike.

Articles, books, Maena, Cycle Rickshaw used by Mahaswamigal are also on display.

MS Subbulakshmi Museum is in the first hall displaying rare pictures and artifacts and her songs/concerts played in the background. A beautiful larger than life idol decorates the hall with Mahaswamigal's quotes and English transliterated song of Sri Rajaji's 'Kuraiondrum Illai' song.

Museum Timings:

5.00 P.M. to 8.00 P.M. (Weekdays)
10.00 A.M. to 1.00 P.M. (on holidays)

Inside the campus, there is a beautiful temple for Sri Ganapathy, Sri Kamakshi ambal (designed as a replica of Kanchi Sri Kamakshi ambal's sanctum sanctorium), Sri Mahadeva with shrines for Sri Dakshinamoorthy to his left, Sri Adi Shankara to his right, facing each other and Sri Mahaswamigal behind Sri Nandi facing the Lord. Sri Mahadeva's shrine has Veda Patashalas on three sides. It is divine to see the very young Vidhyarthis doing abhyasa here (close to 300 Vidhyartis study here).

Mahaswamigal's bhaktas should not miss to visit this museum and Temple
