Kalady (literally means feet), situated majestically on the banks of the river Periyar, is a popular Hindu religious destination in Kerala. Famed as the birth place of Adi Sankara, the founder of the Advaita order, Kalady was his birth place. Born into a Brahmin family in the 8th century, Sringeri Mutt located located here is a must see place among Hindu pilgrims.

The Kalady river (Periyar) flows through the town. The legend associated with this river is that, while going to River Poorna, young Sankara’s mother fainted. Knowing of this Sankara fervently prayed to Lord Krishna and Krishna blessed him by saying that the river will originate from the feet (Kalady) of Sankara. Proof to this is that, one can see that the river takes an unusual turn here towards the Mutt. Numerous Kalady Kerala honeymoon tours are also available.

Kalady houses a shrine built in the memory of Adi Sankara. The Sri Adi Sankara Keerthi Sthamba Mandapam established by Kanchi Kamakoti Mutt is the prime attraction here. The memorial shrine stands tall with a 9-storeyed octagonal tower showcasing the life of the saint and the six ways of worshiping. The temple complex also has shrines dedicated to Dakshinamurti and Goddess Sharada.

A family temple renovated in the recent past, also attracts many devotees. The Sri Ramakrishna International Temple built in 1976, a specimen of modern architectural beauty thronged by pilgrims all through the year, is also a must see. Other nearby attractions are Ramakrishna Advaita Ashram and the Malayatoor church.
