Chinmaya Gurukul - Alpharetta
Chinmaya Mission Alpharetta is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. With the grace and blessings of Pujya Gurudev and Pujya Guruji, on the auspicious Mahashivratri day of 2001, a Bala Vihar® of 25 kids was started at Alpharetta. Over the years the the enrollment kept growing and in 2007 all the Bala Vihar activities moved to South Forsyth Middle school in Cumming GA and now into our own Chinmaya Gurukul Ashram in Cumming GA.
CM Alpharetta became an unincorporated center of CM West in July 2007 and got incorporated as an independent center in 2008. CM Alpharetta purchased a property on 11.5 acres suitable for its Ashram which was inaugurated by Pujya Guruji in May 2015 who named it ‘Chinmaya Gurukul’.

Consecration date – July 19, 2015 by the priest from Hindu Temple of Atlanta.
