Sree Narayana College, Chempazhanthy was established by the Sree Narayana Trusts, Kollam, in memorial obeisance to the great social reformer and seer, Sree Narayana Guru. Chempazhanthy is a village of historical importance, as it is hallowed by the birth of the Guru (1855). It was the revolutionary vision of this great sage that metamorphosed the state of Kerala, which was called a lunatic asylum by Swamy Vivekananda, into one of the most progressive states of India. Chempazhanthy, the birth place of the Guru, is ten kilometers away from Thiruvananthapuram city. The Guru sowed the seed for a radical change in the Society of Kerala and launched a campaign against social evils and morbid traditions. The Philosophy and the reformatory of the Guru changed the lives of the downtrodden and marginalised people more than the activities of all other social reform movements in India put together.
