ADI SHANKARACHARYA, the proponent of 'ADVAITHA' Philosophy
founded Chaturamnaya Peethas in four centres of "Bharatha Varsha"
One among them is SRINGERI situated in Chickmagalur District of
Karnataka state. Mother Sharadamba, the presiding diety is blessing
millions of devotees from there.
It was the intense desire of Late Alevoor Shyama Rao, one of the
founders of Sharada Mantap, to build a temple for 'Mother' and 'Sri
Shankaracharya' at Kunjibettu. Udupi. Unfortunately this could not
be achieved during his life time. But the wish remained in the
hearts of his friends and relatives, to see light in 1988.
Blessed by his Holiness Srimadabhinava Vidyatheertha of Sringeri,
the friends and relatives of Late Shyama Rao and people of the
locality started the temple project under the able leadership of Sri
Ambalpady Krishna Rao - Former Chairman of Syndicate Bank. The
project was completed in 1988, and His Holiness Srimadabhinava
Vidyatheertha Swamiji installed the three Shrines - Sri Sharadamba
at the centre and Sri Mahaganapathi and Shankaracharya by her sides.
It was a significant Co-incidence that his Successor Sri Sri
Bharathi Theertha Swamigal placed the 'Kalasha' on the gopuram.
Since then Poojas are being performed to the three dieties regularly
in the morning and evening as per vedic rites. The number of
devotees increased day by day and the temple has become a place of
Bhajan, Archan, Sthothra Patana for the people of the locality. As a
result, the prayer hall appeared to be insufficient to accommodate
the visitors. In view of that management felt to expand the temple
and add new space around the temple.
Sri Sharada parmeshwari, sri shankaracharya and Maha Ganapathy
shrines were reinstalled (Punar prathista) in three separate seat.
Sri Sharada became main diety. Punar prathista and
Brahmakalashabhisheka was done in presence and with blessings of Sri
Sri Bharathi Theertha Swamiji of Sri Sringerimatta on 11-3-2004. Sri
Swamiji blessed that who belives and prays Sri Sharada Parmeshwari,
she wiil fulfill their wishes.
In 2007 management felt that temple require additional place to
perform Yaga, Yajna, Samohika Bhajana, Parayana,etc and also to
perform other religious functions in the temple. They constructed
new Jana Mandira a mini hall having total 2500 sqare feet an ideal
hall for small religious function, which was inaugurated in march
2008 by Sri Sri Narashimhashram Swamiji of Sri Matha, Balekuduru.
