Shardha Peeth is the first Peeth among the four Peeths established by Adi Shankaracharya. Other Peeths founded by Adi Shankaracharya are at Sringeri, Puri and Jyotirmath. The Shardha Peeth is over 250 years old and is visited every year by thousands of pilgrims from across India.
Adi Shankaracharya found this Peeth in 491 AD for withholding the traditions of India. This Peeth is also known by various names like Kalika Matha, which is in charge of the Sama Veda, the Paschimamnaya Matha and the Western Matha.
The Shardha Peeth operates a museum, Shardha Vidhyapeeth Art College and an Indian Research Temple. This Peeth is an ideal learning centre for students who want to acquire knowledge about Indian Culture and Archaeology. The entire research work in the Peeth is carried out in Sanskrit language. This Peeth is managed by Swami Swaroopananda Saraswati, who also heads the Northern Matha at Jyotirmath.
