Sri Sankara Matam at Kalavai - Photo Feature

Kalavai is a small town located at about 45 kms from Kanchipuram, in the Vellore District. The town is historically significant for the Sankara Matham, and houses the Adhistanams (place where the  mortal remains of a Saint are interred) of the 66th and 67th pontiffs of Sri Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam - Sri Chandrasekarendra Sarswathi the VII and Sri Mahadevendra Saraswathi the V. The 68th Pontiff His Holiness Sri Chandrasekharendra Saraswati Swamiji was initiated into ascetic order and ordained as the 68th Acharya of the Kanchi Kamakoti Math in Kalavai..

The Sankara Matham is located very close to the Bus-stand. The Matham also runs a home for the aged and a home for the physically handicapped, close to the Matham premises.
