Welcome to Satya Nilayam
Sacred Heart College was established in 1895 at Shembaganur, Kodaikanal, Tamil Nadu, as a center for the philosophical training of young men who chose to become Catholic priests in the Society of Jesus. Several hundred students from India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Europe and North America have passed out of this College during its long history.
Prompted by a desire to be closer to the centers of higher learning and culture, the College was shifted to its present campus in 1980 and the place was named as SATYA NILAYAM.

The intellectual formation in philosophy has imprinted in me a lasting critical attitude. My appreciation to Satya Nilayam fraternity and all who walked with me.”
Theophine Michael Raja P. S.J.
“I am immensely joyful to have undertaken one of my crucial formation periods, Philosophy, here in Satya Nilayam. For me, Satya Nilayam is a school of knowledge through which I have learnt to habituate two practices: ‘knowing oneself’ that leads to self-knowledge and awareness; and ‘forgetting oneself’ that leads to selfless service and men for others. Hats off to SN!”
Wilson Kandulna S.J.
“I had a wonderful time here, both in the academics and in the community. It was a time to meet so many new faces from different cultural backgrounds, who were ever supportive and encouraging. Responsibilities within the community and ministry outside were very helpful and formed me personally. I feel grateful to God for these graceful opportunities.”
Richard Pinto S.J.
“Satya Nilayam, in my personal view, is an abode of learning for life in all the phases: academic, community, spiritual and apostolic. I have experienced the aspect of the ‘beloved community’ that Martin Luther King Junior describes of, as it highlights the inclusiveness and love for all. Satya Nilayam offered me challenging life experiences for my personal growth and creative fidelity. I am grateful to all those who lead me right and correct direction to focus on my vision of life to be a true human being”
