Situated on the eastern bank of the river Bhagirathi, the 150 yrs old Krishnath college which has gathered to itself a halo bequeathed by its eminent teachers and alumuni, was originally founded by the Govt. of Bengal under East India Company on the 18th Nov. 1853 by notification no : 1913 20th Oct 1853, with the assistance of Nawab, Zaminders and a number of common people of this district although the idea of founding both the college and the University was first conceived by the visionary idealist and a Renaissance man Raja Krishnath - a dream that was not translated into reality by his cruel untimely death. However, since then the growth and development of this college have always been intimately concerned with Cossimbazar Raj family. Thus it is significant that the genesis of this Institution marked a cultural synthesis between feudalism and democracy not often dreamed of in that remote past.

Mr. Harrison was the first principal of this college. On 29th July, 1863 Sir Cecil Beadon, the then lieutenant Governor of Bengal laid the foundation of the present college building a wonderful specimen of Saracenic - Gothic Architecture style. In 1865 Berhampore college attained the full status of a college with B.A and law classes. In the year 1897 the British Government handed over the college to the Honourable Maharaja Manindra Chandra Nandi and in 1903 as recorded in the Calcutta University calendar this Institute was re christened as Krishnath College. In 1856 the college came under the Govt. sponsored scheme in accordance with the U.G.C regulation, Govt. of India.
