Bellur Trust

Bellur Krishnamachar & Seshamma Smaraka Niddhi Trust (BKSSNT)

Bellur is a village in southern India, and the birthplace of Sri B.K.S. Iyengar. Sri B.K.S. Iyengar established the Bellur Trust with a vision - to provide the village with all of life's necessities. This will help not only the villagers but also people living in the surrounding region. Sri B.K.S. Iyengar, who left Bellur at the age of 18, has a deep concern for his birthplace.

BKSSNT is a charitable trust. It has undertaken and completed several projects including a school, fresh water tower and medical clinic. To find out more about the BKSSNT, visit the BKS Iyengar web site at
