A huge compound was encomposed this Gurukulam. It was also called SCGR High School.
As the school is living for many decades, the guys who studied in this school should be spreading their wings all around the world.
It was a beauty that this school was tucked in to this village!
Once my dad told me that he was teaching in this school from Karaikudi and used to visit this place for the construction of this school, in early 1920s.
why they built in Amaravathipudur?
In 1920s Karaikudi could easily give margin for this school.
May be, Alagappa Chettiar made the kingdoom in Karaikudi and Subramania Chettiar might have wanted a separate place to grow!
And you should know, this is a residential school!
But girls can join as days schooler and that girl should have the iron will to with stand the Headmaster, Thiruvikraman, who had a legendry treatment for girls.
