Sringeri Sharada Peetham, Karnataka

Been there recently?

The Dakshinamnaya Peetham, established by Sri Shankara Bhagavatpada, was the beginning of the ancient temple of Sri Sharada, the presiding deity of Sringeri. It was originally just a regular shrine with a sandalwood Sharada idol installed over the Sri Chakra that Sri Adi Shankara carved into a rock. Huge stone pillars that have been expertly carved to depict gods like Durga, Raja Rajeshwari, Dwarapalakas, and Devis make up the Mahamandapam, or temple pavilion. These are sculpted according to the Shilpa Sastras practised in Tamil Nadu.
