It is a tradition to have an educational institute named after the people who donated huge amounts of money. It is very rare to have an educational institute in the name of a very poor primary teacher. It is the greatness of Doddaballapura people not just honors Sri. Kondadiyappa by opening an institute in his name and also serve in the institution. Sri.Kongadiyappa was born in the year 1861 and was the eldest among his four brothers. Due to financial poblems Sri. Kongadiyappa discontinued his education but his aim was to provide good education for his brothers. Sri Kongadiyappa is a model teacher to all teachers. Upon his request many rich people donated huge amounts of money for poor students because of his selfless nature towards social work. He was awarded "Lokasevanirata" by the Maharaja of Mysore. His Highness Krishnaraj Wodeyar for his selfless lifetime work. He has contributed his service in the field of education, social, environmental etc. Now Doddaballapura town has became one of the best education provider for students who are in need of education.
Sri. Kongadiyappa College is educating students in the latest fields of Education including Science, Computer Science, Arts, Economics, BSc microbiology & Master degrees MSc & M.com disciplines. The college is having well-maintained, huge Library and well organized teaching staff.
It would add more respect to Sri.Kongadiyappa if we get educated at Sri.Kongadiyappa college.
