Shankaracharya Samadhi in Kedarnath

Shankaracharya Samadhi, the grave of Adi Guru Shankaracharya, is one of the most popular tourist attractions. Located slightly behind the Kedarnath Temple, it is also one of the most visited places in Kedarnath.

Sri Sankaracharya, a famous Hindu philosopher, is considered to be the renovator of the Kedarnath shrine. According to the chronicles of history, it is said that he had made relentless journeys so as to propagate his Advaita Philosophy.

Additionally, it is also believed that he came to Kedarnath and in 8th century he established this holy shrine along with one of his four Mathas. He attained Nirvana at this place at the tender age of 32 years.
