The year 1947 saw India win its freedom. The nation had to be rebuilt from ruins to achieve its former glory and regain its rightful place in international scenario. Education was acknowledged as main thrust area. Late Sri H.M.Gangadharaiah ‘Shikshana Bheeshma’, a staunch Gandhian and Buddhist, decided to address this  cause. He envisioned an educational establishment which will disperse the seeds of knowledge and build a more intelligent society. It was this zeal which led to the establishing of “Sri Siddhartha Education Society” (SSES) at Gollahalli (now Siddharthanagar) in the outskirts of Tumkur city in the year 1959 with the warm blessings of the father of Bhoodan movement ‘Saint Vinoba Bhave’ with the objective of providing education to the student community coming from rural areas and backward classes.

      Today Sri Siddhartha Education Society is considered among Karnataka’s premier educational establishments. Highly regarded for its excellent infrastructure and quality faculty, it is widely recognized among India ’s academic circle. Led by Dr.G.Shivaprasad, a post graduate and an eminent ophthalmologist and Dr.G.Parameshwara, a doctorate in agricultural science from Australia , Sri Siddhartha Education Society continues to march forward on the ideals set by their father, late Sri. H.M.Gangadharaiah. Their commitment to nation building remains the same.

      Today Sri Siddhartha Education Society is running a large number of educational institutions under its aegis spread across the southern part of Karnataka. These educational institutions promote excellent training from primary schooling to advanced professional courses and also help to preserve the ancient heritage of India .
