|The Dharmaparipalana Sabha was formed with the noble motive of promoting religious and cultural activities. The Sabha was renovated in 2001, through the stellar efforts of Sri R Yagnaraman and the munificent contributions of Dr Nalli Kuppuswami Chetty especially, and those of various organizations as well as the general public. The renovation involved retaining the existing structure and building around it to give a classical Chettinad / Tanjore architectural flavor.
The fundamental aim of the Sabha is to inculcate the taste for the classical fine arts, especially Carnatic music, and to encourage young talents and present them to future generations, to arrange literary discourse periodically and to run a music school to teach classical music through the Guru-Sishya tradition.
The website, www.dharmaparipalanasabha.org, gives a rich expanse of information about the Sabha, the people behind it, its various festivals, awards, music releases and so on. You can also find a unique selection of rare articles and photographs from the sabha's archives.
