Sankara Samadhi is the resting place of the great Advaita philosopher Sri Adi Sankara. It is a commonly held belief that Sri Sankara attained salvation in Thrissur in 820 AD at the age of 32. An unassuming temple has also been built in the vicinity with a small but captivating image of Sri Sankara for the benefit of hordes of devotees who come to visit the great teacher.
Located amidst a picturesque setting, the place has attuned itself to the spiritual aura of the Sri Sankara, as it were. Even if not a believer, the place could be visited to experience an uncanny presence that calms the nerves.
