"Chatrapati Rajarshi Shahu Maharaj" of Kolhapur Dynasty is the source of inspiration behind the establishment of this premier institute of education devoted to the cause of education to the poor strata of the society in general and girl students in particular.
In memory of "Karveer Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj IV "who was humiliated and assassinated in the Ahmednagar fort by the British, Shahu Maharaj sanctioned special grants in 1918 for building of Maratha Boarding.
