Karnataka Samskrit University

Department of Samskrit Language and Literature

The Sanskrit Language, whatever may be its antiquity, is considered to be more perfect than the Greek, copious than Latin and more exquisitely refined than either due to its wonderful structure. It is the nature of a spoken dialect that is undergoes constant changes.
The Sanskrit Language has been used for poetic and other literary works in all the periods of Indian history and continues to be so even today. In general, so much emphasis on the beauty and charm of Sanskrit Language is laid, it would only be proper to notice that Sanskrit Literature contains some wonderful ideas appealing to the modern thinking. The classes are being taken by efficient dedicated scholars of the department.
