Welcome to Maratha Mandir
A charitable institution was established in 1945 by a few men of vision who perceived that the forthcoming Independence by itself would not bring back the glorious past of India, with over 80% of its populace living in rural areas without education. They recognized the need of the hour and setup strong institution to educate the populace, to make them aware of the rights as well as what they can be and what they can do for the nation. It was thus decided that the institution of Maratha Mandir would be open to every one irrespective of his or her religion, caste, and language. The founders named this institution as "Maratha Mandir" the word "Maratha" to mean all those who consider Maharshtra as their domicile and the word "Mandir" to signify the purity in human life.
It is said that the heights that great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight but they, while their companions slept, were toiling upwards in the night. Late Shri G.G. Gawde, affectionately known as Babasaheb Gawde, was one such person. A visionary, with a strong zeal to educate the people, he gave up a promising career in the Police Department of British India and dedicated himself to this mission. He established Maratha Mandir in 1945, a charitable institution open to one and all, irrespective of caste and creed, religion and language. Today the edifice stands tall at Mumbai Central, offering a proactive and multi- pronged program that prepares students for significant roles to play in future.
We pay tribute to this legendary figure, driven by determination and enterprise. We thank him for setting up such a fine institution. Through Maratha Mandir, his spirit will live on forever.
