The holy place serves as the fundamental center of the Smarta section, established by the great teacher Adi shankara himself.

After the founder went on his expedition to find the remaining of the three peethams—in Dwarka, Puri and Badrinath, respectively, Sureshwaracharya became the successor of Shankaracharya in the Sringeri Sharada Peetham.
