Monument · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Shankaracharya Samadhi marks the site where the 8th-century founder of Vedanta school of Indian philosophy Adi Shankaracharya is believed to have disappeared and became one with the Divine. The floods from 2013 have washed away the original burial place and the statues of the mystic, causing great damage to the adjacent temple as well. Pilgrims still come to experience the presence of the sage and benefit from the healing properties of a hot water spring, said to be created by him.

  • The Samadhi of Adi Guru Shankaracharya is located just behind the Kedarnath temple. The grave of Shankaracharya is one of the most popular and most visited places in Kedarnath. Adi Shankaracharya was a great scholar and a saint who established four sacred Mathas in India. According to history, he had made relentless journeys so as to propagate his Advaita Philosophy. The current shrine of Kedarnath is said to have been built by Adi Shankaracharya in the 8th century AD. It is said that after establishing four sacred Mathas, Shankaracharya attained Nirvana at this place at the age of 32 years.
