Sri Sharadamba Temple is located in the town of Shringeri. It is dedicated to Saraswati. Sri Sacchidananda Shivabhinava Nrisimha Bharati raised the present structure in granite with polished granite walling round the sanctum and Sri Chandrasekhara Bharati consecrated the new temple in May 1916.
The temple was built in the 8th-century, and was founded by Sri Adi Shankaracharya. Originally it was an unpretentious shrine with the Murti of Sharada made of sandalwood, installed over the Sri Chakra that Sri Adi Shankaracharya carved on a rock. However, Sri Bharati Krishna Tirtha and Sri Vidyaranya had a temple built in the Kerala style, with timber and tiled roof. Sri Bharati Krishna Tirtha substituted the sandalwood idol with the present golden idol.
According to legends, Lord Shiva gave a crystal Chandramouleeshwara Linga to Sri Adi Shankaracharya. The Linga is still be visited and the Chandramouleeshwara Puja is performed for the Linga every night. It is believed that Goddess Sharadambika, an incarnation of Goddess Saraswati, came to Earth as Upaya Bharathi. It is a common belief, that by worshiping her, one can receive blessings of Brahma, Shiva, and Vishnu along with Durga, Lakshmi, and Saraswati. The ritual of Aksharabhyasa performed here is considered to be sacred and fulfilling. The parents of kids in the age of 2-5 are given a slate and chalk or alternatively, a plate of rice on which they pray to Goddess Saraswati and the Guru to impart good knowledge and education to their children.
