INTRODUCTION

Erstwhile Sankara Bhaktha Sabha, now known as Sankara Bhaktha Sabha Trust, a newly constituted body and registered as a non-profitable Charitable Trust was started in the year 1968 with the blessings of His Holiness Paramacharyal of Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam. The Sabha with the supreme grace of the Divine and the ever-flowing compassion of the great Acharyals of Kanchi has been successfully rendering yeoman service in Religious & Spiritual Activities.

With the spontaneous cooperation and financial help extended by the Patrons, Charitable Institutions and General Public, the Sabha was able to acquire and construct the Prestigious VEDA BHAVAN at Road No.1, Chandragiri Colony, Neredmet, Hyderabad and the same was inaugurated by H.H. Sri Jayendra Saraswati Swamigal of Kanchi in the year 1997. Since then, the Sabha has been functioning at Veda Bhavan.
