The Omkarananda Alaknanda Educational Academy, a Junior High School, is situated 140 km (5 hours drive) away from Rishikesh, in Srikot near Shrinagar, in the District Pauri Garhwal. Shrinagar is an important station for the pilgrims on the way to Badrinath. The famous H.N. Bahuguna Garhwal University is also located in this town.

The area of Shrinagar/Srikot is famous from ancient times, since Adishankaracharya had visited this place with his disciples. The story goes that Adishankaracharya, who was a divine embodiment of highest purity and wisdom, was severely attacked by evil Tantriks, who wanted to destroy him. For that purpose, they had constructed a Shriyantra, but in a wrong way. Adishankaracharya found out everything and immersed the wrongly constructed Shriyantra in the river, so that it cannot harm anymore anybody.

The Omkarananda Alaknanda Educational Academy in Srikot is situated at the Alaknanda River, ca. 2 km from the centre of Shrinagar, towards Rudraprayag and Badrinath. Very near to the School, at the Alaknanda River, is a Siddhapeeth, a Temple of the Divine Mother Dhari-Devi.

This beautiful School was founded in 1991 and covers Classes from Nursery to Classes VIII. This School is widely known for its constant excellent results. It has become very popular for its excellent management, high class education and remarkable extra-curricular activities, like folkdances according to the Uttarakhand culture and scout guide education on a National level. Since this School is very deserving and the number of students is increasing much, the Omkarananda Educational Society has sponsored the construction of new school buildings.
