A temple of Knowledge
Sringeri , in the Western Ghats is famous for the temple to Sharada, the goddess of Knowledge. There is an ancient monastery here, established by Adi Shankaracharya 1800 years ago. It is a prominent seat of Hindu philosophy. The monastery is on the banks of the river Tunga, which is full of fish. People do not fish here out of respect for the monks.
My thanks to the team of Our World, where you can see photos from all parts of the world.
