Sringeri Mutt, Chikamagalur

(4.7/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Home to many historic temples and the first “matha” (a Hindu monastery), Sringeri Mutt was founded by Adi Shankara, a theologian and a pioneer of Advaita Vedanta philosophy. Legend has it that the ancient teacher chose this site for his spiritual sanctuary when he saw a cobra providing shelter to a spawning frog. Sited on the riverbank 670 m (2,204 ft) above sea level, the complex provides calm and serene ambiance for roaming and meditation. The oldest temples date back to the 8th century. Look for the one that features 12 pillars engraved by skillfully crafted zodiacal symbols.
