This Temple is very beautiful. A must visit when in Sringeri. You feel the cool breeze blowing and its so peaceful. Has a small pond at the back of the temple and you can feed the fish!

Must visit in Sringeri. This temple is situated in the same premise next to Sharadamba temple. There is a river next to the temple with lots of fish and you can feed them too.

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!
