Gopalakrishna Bharati (Tamil: கோபாலகிருஷ்ண பாரதி) (1811–1896) was a Tamil poet and a composer of Carnatic music. He wrote a katAkALatcEpam (Tamil: கதாகாலக்ஷேபம்), NantanAr Carittiram (Nandanar Charitram), two other works in this genre, and many independent kritis.

Bharati was a contemporary of Tyagaraja whom he is said to have met, and who asked him whether he had composed anything in the rAga AbhOgi; Bharati subsequently composed one of his most popular kritis in rUpaka tALa, CapApatikku. The great Tamil literary figure, U. V. Swaminatha Iyer wrote two sources for Bharati’s life: a biography of the composer and his own autobiography, which contains references to Bharati, who was his guru in music.
