Sringeri, one of the most revered holy towns in South India, is located on the banks of Tunga River. The town is in Chikmagalur village in Karnataka. Sringeri has got its name from the epic character Rishyasringa, a famous personality in Ramayana.

It is a bustling city with the presence of world renowned Sri Sarada Samsthanam (Sri Sringeri Sharada Peetham) established in 7th century by Saint Adi Sankaracharya. Adi Sankaracharya, the great exponent of Advaita Vedanta philosophy, had established his first monastery in Sringeri. This is regarded one of the Shakthi Sthalas in India. It is first Mutt out of the original four Sankara Ashrams in India.

Sringeri as a pilgrim town houses many other temples including 14th century Vidyashankara temple. This temple is located at a picturesque location along the banks of the river in a pleasant ambiance. The temple architectural style is a specimen of the Vijayanagar style of architectural brilliance. Chenna Keshab temple and Sharadamba Temple are other two important shrines in Sringeri.

As a part of the western Ghats, Sringeri offers immaculate views of nature. The region surrounding is rich with beautiful scenery and amazing waterfalls.
