The Jagadguru Veerasimhaasana Peetha established in the 11th Century A.D. at Suttur by
Adi Jagadguru Sri Shivarathreeshwara Shivayogi Mahaswamiji has a history dating back to 1000 years,
according to the scriptures. Suttur is a village in Nanjangud taluk, Mysore district in Karnataka. It is
about 28 km from Mysore city, in the south east direction.
The Peetha with its high ideals has been making remarkable contribution in religious,
social, educational and economic spheres in the state and across the country. It is striving for social
development by responding to the community needs. It strongly believes that unless the problems of the
socially backward communities and the poor are solved, there cannot be any social development. With this
objective, it has taken up several development initiatives, while at the same time living up to its
principle of `work is worship’ and is engaged in raising public awareness on issues of social concern.
