The mutt was established by the great seer Shankaracharya. For thousands of years the mutt is a place of spiritual thinking and preaching. Situated on the bank of the Shalmala river the mutt is surrounded by green forest, areca, and coconut plantations. Rajarajeshwari, Chandramoulechwara, and Laxminarayan temples built in Vijaynagar style are the sanctums to attract the devotees. The mutt and seers have been in the work of converting the people from bad habits towards spirituality.
