Need of Gurukul in Modern Era

Development of the child in 21st century is challenging in itself. At Shree Swaminarayan Gurukul International Schools, we deeply understand that today’s parents are worried and equally confused about their child’s development.

Shree Swaminarayan Gurukul International Schools’ education system is about understanding the hidden talents, strengths, passion, feelings, morality, spirituality and dwell through all those weaknesses within a child. Shree Swaminarayan Gurukul has emerged as a boon to nurture their qualities and help them to grow better as a human being.

Education without Values & Spirituality,


Education is like a food without SALT! – Education won’t be TASTY until it is with VALUES!

Ravan also was a SCHOLAR & Hanumanji also a SCHOLAR – Whom do we worship? Why?


Nobody set Ravan as his role model though he was powerful & scholar!
