Vision of founder

Divinity of the saint and sublimity of the nature have rendered the campus a balanced blending of an ideal surrounding meant for the all round development of the young in their formative years. Located not far from the town, (1 Km) the campus has the advantage of fresh breeze and an unpolluted life necessary for healthy body and healthy mind of the young and the innocent.

An unimaginably vast stretch of land measuring about 14 acres within the municipal limits of Karkala has been the legacy of the late Prof. K. Damodar Kini, the founder principal of Sri Bhuvanendra College due to his distant farsightedness prompted by dedicated determination to enlarge the message of Sri Bhuvanendra. The land could accommodate and enrich the infrastructure such as open air theatre, hostels, full pledged indoor stadium, etc., and could provide abundant scope for future growth of the college.

Padmashree Dr. T. M. A. Pai

Dr. T. M. A. Pai (April 30, 1898 – May 29, 1978)- the wizard of Manipal, is the visionary whose far sightedness has transformed a barren tiny village into a productive megatown with its thrust on health, ignorance and poverty.

Dr. Pai's message of hope to the poor, the desperate and the deprived is loud and clear. The saga of the growth of Manipal under Dr. T. M. A. Pai with its international dimension is a monumental phenomenon

Manipal today is an educational hub which attracts students from over 55 nationalities. This monumental phenomenon testifies the spirit of dynamism that all institutions of Dr. T.M.A. Pai embrace

Dr. Pai has also been recognized by Ripley's Believe It or Not as the person who has established the most number of educational institutions in his lifetime.
