National Sanskrit University, earlier known as Rashtriya Sanskrit Vidyapeetha is a central university in Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh, India.[2][3]


The school was established in 1956 under Ministry of Education by Government of India to propagate Sanskrit studies, traditional Sastras and Pedagogy. It was accredited by National Assessment and Accreditation Council with an "A" grade.

In considering its achievements and potential for research in Traditional Sastras the University was given the status of Center of Excellence in Traditional Sastras during the X plan period in 1989.

In March 2020, the Indian Parliament passed the Central Sanskrit Universities Act, 2020[4] to upgrade Rashtriya Samskrita Vidyapeetha, a deemed to be university to a central university as National Sanskrit University, along with two other universities Central Sanskrit University and Shri Lal Bahadur Shastri National Sanskrit University.
