Soothe your mind in Sringeri

Advaitam, a philosophy founded by Adi Sankara. He set up several matts all over India and Sringeri is one such mutt. The place is cool and serene. There is peace in the place and one has to be there to experience this feel. River tunga and temples around provide that soothing effect.

Sringeri Overview

Sringeri is one of the major religious townships of South India located on the banks of River Tunga. It is situated in Chikmagalur District of Karnataka lying in the mountainous terrain of the Western Ghats. Sringeri is situated at an average elevation of 672 metres. The holy town is famous for the first ever matha established by Adi Shankaracharya, founder of the doctrine of Advaita Vedanta.

The town derived its name from the mythological character Rishyasringa, who was a part of Ramayana. Famed for featuring a major centre for Advaita Vedanta, Sri Sarada Samsthanam is also known as Sri Sringeri Sharada Peetham. Sri Sringeri Sharada Peetham was established in the 7th century and is one of the prominent Shakthi Sthalas at present.

The pilgrim town also has a 14th century Vidyashankara Temple, one of the noteworthy sites to witness Vijayanagar style of architecture. Chenna Keshab Temple and Sharadamba Temple are the other highlights of the region.

Agumbe, Jog Falls, Kudremukh and the Sringagiri hills around are some of the notable sites to visit. Sarada Navratri is a major festival, which is celebrated with great zeal and show. During the festival, the pilgrim centre is frequented by devotees from all over.

Travelling to Sringeri is not much of a hassle, as the destination is connected with several parts of the country. The closest airport to Sringeri is Mangalore International Airport, located at a distance of 100 km. The nearest railhead to the town is at Udupi, which is linked by railway to Chikmagalur.
