Saraswati Mahal Library History & My Association

The name of the present world famous TMSSML & RC has been in vogue with minor variations in the title since 1918. The support of the state government of Tamil Nadu in the day to day maintenance of this Institution and the financial aid given by the Ministry of Culture, Government of India in its research and developmental activities are the mainstay of this great library. Earlier to that period it was also known as Saraswati Mahal Palace Library or The Srinagari Granthalayamu built and maintained by the local support of the principal Royal authorities like the great Maratha rulers (1667-1855) and the earlier Telugu Nayaka kings (1550-1673).
