Sri Sankara Matam, West Mambalam, Chennai

West Mambalam  is one of the oldest localities in Chennai and is situated in the middle of the city. Sri Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam's branch is located in Easwaran Koil Street. The Sankara Matam acts as a hub of spiritual and dharmic activities.

A few years back, with the Blessings of Their Holinesses Jagadguru Pujyasri Jayendra Saraswati Shankaracharya Swamiji and Pujyasri Sankara Vijayendra Saraswathi Shankaracharya Swamiji, the deity of Devi Kamakshi was installed in Srimatam. Regular pujas are offered to Devi Kamakshi. During auspicious occasions like Navaratri, special pujas are performed.
