Chinmaya Swayambhu Ayyappa Temple

Adi Sankara Nilayam is a hallowed place, the maternal birth home of the great saint, Adi Sankara. This centuries old sacred dwelling houses some precious temples from an era gone by. These temples were worshipped by Sri Sankara and his mother, Aryamba. The pond adjacent to the temple compound adds immense beauty to the serene surroundings and artistic structures. Adi Sankara Nilayam houses the ancient shrines of Ayyapa, Rama, Krishna, Ganesha, Vettakkorumakan (Kirata-Shiva) and Goddesses Nagayaksi and Bhagavati. It is indeed amazing to note that all these deities chose this premise to bless it with their divine presence.
