About College

Legend has it that during one of his holy missions Guru Nanak Dev Ji visited Bidar, at a time when it was in the grip of terrible famine. When the local people approached and requested Guruji to relieve them from this sorrow and suffering, he performed a miracle with the turn of a nearby stone with his right toe and a spring of water burst out from the laterite rock mountain. Till this day crystal clear water flows from the laterite trap. The belief is that drinking of this water cures many ailments. Now a magnificent sparkling white Gurudwara called GuruDwara Sri Nanak Jhira Saheb, stands beside the holy spring as one of the holiest places of the Sikhs.

A prabandhak committee was formed in 1950 to renovate and develop Gurdwara under the Presidentship of Pant Bhushan Sant Sardar Bhishan Singhji. Unfortunately in the year 1966, Santji expired and the mantle fell on the shoulders of his son Sardar Joga Singhji who continued to provide stewardship to the Prabandhak Committee to the welfare and up-liftment of Human Society.

As developing activities were growing fast, a public, Religious, Educational and Charitable trust by the name Sri Nanak Jhira Saheb Foundation was established in March 1987 by the Prabandhak Committee Gurudwara Sri Nanak Jhira Saheb, Bidar.

Under the able guidance and dedication of the President Sardar Joga Singhji many more institutions sprang up and flourished. In recognition of his service for a noble cause Sardar Joga Singhji was conferred the honour of “Shiromani” by the then Vice President. The sudden demise of Sardar Joga Singhji was a tragic blow to the foundation and institutions coming under it. But however the herculian task is now being efficiently shouldered by the dynamic President, Dr. Balbir Singhji. The Vice Chairperson Sardarni Reshma Kaurji has also equally contributed to the upliftment of the institutions through her tireless efforts and devotion.
