A Brief Retrospection
The Society traces its roots back to 1917, when Rajarshi Chhatrapati Shahu Maharaj of Kolhapur proposed to establish a Memorial of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj in the City of Pune with the intention of creating a central hall with a life size statue of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and a hostel to accommodate a hundred Maratha students.
In 1921, the Prince of Wales laid the foundation-stone of All India Shri Shivaji Memorial Society with great fervour and gaiety.
The Society made a foray into higher and technical education in 1992 and since then it has been only grown in its role of providing quality education and excellence.
