The Sritattvanidhi ("The Illustrious Treasure of Realities") is an iconographic treatise written in the 19th century in Karnataka by the then Maharaja of Mysore, Krishnaraja Wodeyar III (b. 1794 - d. 1868). The Maharaja was a great patron of art and learning and was himself a scholar and writer. There are around 50 works ascribed to him.

The work is in nine parts, each called a nidhi ("treasure"). The nine sections are:

  1. Shakti nidhi
  2. Vishnu nidhi
  3. Shiva nidhi
  4. Brahma nidhi
  5. Graha nidhi
  6. Vaishnava nidhi
  7. Shaiva nidhi

Śrītattvanidhi (श्रीतत्त्वनिधि) was a compendium composed by Kṛṣṇarāja Waḍiyar III, the Mahārāja of Mysore, who was active in the mid-nineteenth century (Sjoman 1996, 40). The Haṭhābhyāsapaddhati was a source text of the Śrītattvanidhi (see Birch 2018, 131–134), and probably predates it by a hundred years or so (Birch and Singleton 2019, 14–16).
