College Profile

The long-felt aspiration of the people living in and around Vickramasingapuram for an Institution of higher learning was fulfilled when Thiruvalluvar College was started. The College started functioning in the year 1968-69. The College has witnessed phenomenal growth during the last three decades. The nurturing of the institution should be attributed to the enormous sacrifice, selfless devotion and sincere service of many a philanthropist, administrator and educationist. These are the ones who built the institution brick by brick. It is appropriate that their services are briefly recollected here

This College is named after the Great Saint Thiruvalluvar. It is very close to the temple dedicated to “Lord Siva” at Papanasam, Tirunelveli District, on the banks of the perennial river Thamiraparani in sylvan surroundings contributed by the Pothigai, supposed to be the seat of St.Agasthiyar, who nurtured Tamil language in all its varied excellence, hundreds of years ago.

The College is under the benign management of Kundrakkudi Thiruvannamalai Adheenam Trust headed by His Holiness Srimath Ponnambala Adigalar.
