Hemagiri has the wonderful history of spirituality and mythological events. Once Divine sage Bhruga contemplated Lord Shri Kalyana Venkataramana Swamy. To fullfill the wish of the sage, the God appeared to Bhruga Muni and agree to stay on the hill of Hemagiri, offering the Darshana to all devoties. The people of about 60 villages have been involving in all the special devotional programs and prefer the first pray to Shri Kalyana Venkataramana Swamy. The river Hemavati flows around the holy hill of Hemagiri.
Hemagiri is situated 8 km away from K. R. Pete town on the banks of the Hemavati River. It has a main anicut that provides water for irrigation purposes. The lush green farmlands on backdrop and serene hillock are enticing features of this spot. This site is used for organizing a cattle fair during the car festival celebrated in the nearby Venkataramanaswamy temple.
Every year in the month of January, there is seven-day cattle fair, which is a part of the popular car fest of Sri Kalyana Venkataramana Swamy temple in Hemagiri. The function is inaugurated by dignitaries. Farmers from North Karnataka, participate in the fair with their livestock of “HALLIKAARU BREED.” According to the K.R. Pet taluk administration, the price of a pair of bullocks ranges between Rs. 45,000 to Rs. 1.5 lakh at the fair. Farmers are expected to bring at least 1,000 pairs this year to the fair.
Shri Kalyana Venkataramana High school, Hemagiri was established by Mr. G.P.Shivaram in 1964. He had a wonderful consent about the rural students. According to his vision, the school became one of the most reputed institutions in Mandya districts. It had 120 students in each section from 1964 to 1985. Mr.C.S.Puttaraju, Minister for Small irrigation department, Karnataka Governament, Mr.Rameshbabu BandiSiddegowda Ex-MLA are the alumni of this institution. We may also see some KAS officers, IAS officers, doctors, lawyers and auditors educated from this institution.
The School was running in a good manner with the guidance of Mr. Nanjegowda, Ex-MLA Lakshmipura but because of some political issues and internal problems, they couldn’t maintain the reputation of the school. When they failed to face the issues to fulfill the vision, he decided to handover the school to Shri Adichunchanagiri MahaSamsthanmutt in 1986.
Once taken in charge of the school, Swamiji has maintained the school as it was before. It has led to the increase in strength. After some years, the parents influenced for English medium school. As government started Kannada high school, the strength for Kannada medium reduced.
Swamiji reviewed this situationand started English medium school. With his blessings, as well as present pontiff of Holiness Jagadguru Sri Sri Sri Dr. Nirmalanandanatha Maha Swamiji’s guidelines, Our honorable secretary Sarthaka Sevarathna, Dr. J.N.Ramakrishne Gowda started working on it day and night, re-constructed the building, finally he modified the school within two months and gave a different look to new building. Ultimately, The BGS Public School, Hemagiri was established on 16th June 2016.
The school has the motto, “Learn, Lead and Achieve…..”. BGS PUBLIC SCHOOL was established in HEMAGIRI 2016. With the purpose of providing best education to all children, SRI ADICHUNCHANAGIRI SHIKSHANA TRUST set up BGS Public school. It is providing education from lower KG classes to class 7th .

When the child is ready for a break from school, don’t we want their brains to go on vacation?
