“Beautiful temple with great architecture”

Vidyashankar Temple
Reviewed 30 January 2017

The temple in Sringeri Shankara Mutt next to Sharadamba temple. The Shiva idol in the sanctum sanctorum and carved pillars and the dance hall are super. You need to limb some seven to eight really big steps to reach the temple.
Go round the temple to see the carvings. Also you can see the river and the mutt premises from the temple.

The Vidyashankara Temple was built many centuries back. The unique monument built entirely of stone combining both Hoysala (Chalukya) and Dravidian architectural styles. Tunga river flows at the back side of this temple.

First of all I wd request TripAdvisor to combine Vidya Sankara Temple also under this head. Both are one and the same.
Vidyasankar Temple Sringeri is a master piece in architecture built in 13th century by a great Sankaracharya of Sringeri Mutt, Vidyaranyar. The Dasavathara n intricate workmanship on hardstones, speaks volumes of the skilled Sthapathis of those days. Located on the Thunga River surrounded by forests n mountains, it is a great place to be visited in one's lifetime! Peace n Tranquillity assured!

Beautiful temple. Lot of carvings and sculptures all around the outer wall. Exquisite carvings on the inside of the temple too.

This temple is a part of the Sringeri Temple. The structure is old and beautiful. It has a nice architecture. The climate is cool and one can spend time by sitting around the temple and relax
