Shri Sadguru Samartha Narayana Ashram is a pioneer institution in propagating Sanatana Dharma. Its foundation dates back to 17th century during the time of Shri Shivaji Maharaj who liberated this part of Deccan from the clutches of Mugul Aurangajeb. Then on the advise of his Guru (Master) His Holiness. Shree Sadguru Samartha Ramadasa Maharaj, he declared vast portion of the land on both the sides of river Musa (Muchakunda) for the Ashrams and Mutts where everyday rituals of Sanatana Dharma were performed. These places became the sacred places for Meditation, Anushthanam, Upasana Vedic Mantra Chanting, Performing Yagnas, learning Vedas and Upanishats. During all times thousands of people used to visit these Ashrams to have darshana of Sadhus and Mahatmas and to worship their beloved God. They were all asked to do Gow Seva and render possible physical services for all age groups apart from Bhajans, Keertan and Satsanga. Even every individual was served with Maha Prasadam (Holy Meals). The only desire behind this holy exercise was universal peace and prosperity. Today this Ashram popularly known as Shri Sadguru Samartha Narayana Ashram stands majestically on the Northern Bank for the last 350 years.

From the beginning of this 20th century the incessant effort of His Holiness Shri Sadguru Narayana Maharaj (11th Peethadhipati of Srhi Sadguru Samartha Ramadasa Parampara) has stood against all odds and atrocities during British regime and Rajakars and nurtured this institution for the younger generation to follow at Hyderabad and brought many other branches all over India. Today this holy place is a treasure of true knowledge where people find the solution for all their sorrows.
