11) Adi Sankara Keerthi Sthambam at Kalady:

With the benign blessings of Their Holinesses Pujyasri Shankaracharya Swamiji, a Keerthi Sthamba Mandapam has been consecrated at Kalady, the birth place of Sri Adi Sankara. The Keerthi Sthambam is an imposing 8-storey structure. A pair of elephant statues stand at the entrance. Inside the Sthambam is the Paduka Mandapam, where the Padukas of Sri Adi Sankara have been consecrated and regular worship is offered. One can climb the spiral staircase inside the mandapam and see the paintings and statues on the walls, depicting important episodes from the life of Sri Adi Sankara. Sankara Jayanthi is celebrated every year on the Vaisaka Shukla Panchami day. In May 2003, special celebrations were held here to mark the 2510th birth anniversary of Adi Sankara, the golden jubilee of Pujyasri Jayendra Saraswathi Shankaracharya Swamiji’s Peetarohanam and the silver jubilee celebrations of Adi Sankara Keerthi Sthambam. As part of the celebrations, a procession led by Their Holinesses Pujyasri Jayendra Saraswathi Shankaracharya Swamiji and Pujyasri Sankara Vijayendra Saraswathi Shankaracharya Swamiji was taken out from Angamally to Kalady.

Sri Adi Shankara took Sanyas on the banks of River Narmada. With the Blessings and guidance of Pujyasri Acharya Swamijis, an Adi Shankara mandir has been consecrated at this place.

Adi Shankara mandirs have been established in all the Jyotir Linga Kshetras by Their Holinesses.

Sri Adi Shankara’s 120-feet Statue at Kanchipuram:

This 120 feet statue in Enathur, near Kanchipuram, is the largest statue of Sri Adi Shankara in the world. This statue was inaugurated in the benign presence of Their Holinesses Pujyasri Jayendra Saraswathi Shankaracharya Swamiji and Pujyasri Sankara Vijayendra Saraswathi Shankaracharya Swamiji by the King of Nepal. Right behind the statue is an International Library that contains a large and rare collection of historic manuscripts, collected from various parts of the country during the Vijaya Yatras performed by Their Holinesses to various parts of the country. Efforts are being made to preserve the manuscripts in their original form, as also in electronic form through digitization.
