Our starting point to reach Sringeri was Horanadu..We started at 8.30 am and reached Sringeri at around 11.30 am..On the way we stopped at two points,one is Kalasa where there is a Swayambhoolinga temple and another one is Rambapuri where there is a Rukmini Acharya ashram ..It is the first Veerasaiva kshetra among five kshetras...(Srisailam,Ujjain,Kedarnatha and Kasi) I felt this ashram was not having great significance when compared to the remaining places..
Our schedule did not allow us to meet the present Jagadguru Shankaracharya,Sri Sri Bharati Tirtha Mahaswamiji..Jagadguru Sri Adi Shankara Bhagavatpada established the first of the four Amnaya Peethams at Sringeri around twelve centuries ago to foster the sacred tradition of Sanatana Dharma.
Here are the few pics from Sringeri Mutt..
