Sri Adi Shankaracharya Sharada LakshmiNarasimha Peetam is an ancient Dharmapeetam directly established by Jagadguru Sri Adi Shankaracharya at the Puranic Kshetra Hariharapura, in Chikmagalur District, Karnataka. Lord Sri LakshmiNarasimha Swamy & Goddess Sri Sharada Parameswari are the presiding deities of this renowned Dharmapeetam. The holy land of Hariharapura is located at a distance of about 10 Kms from Koppa Taluk and 20 Kms from the famous pilgrim center of Sringeri.
It is a place replete with rich natural splendor, enveloped by deep serenity and divine presence. The reverberating Vedic chants amidst lush greenery and the gentle flow of River Tunga creates an exquisite ambience of divine fervor and becomes an ideal retreat for the human mind constantly stressed by stormy thoughts and emotions. A few moments at the Sharada LakshmiNarasimha Swamy Temple on the banks of the holy Tunga soothes the turbulent mind and instills immense peace and calmness.
Sreemath Hariharapura has been a prominent Shankaracharya Dharmapeetam, practicing and propagating Sanatana Dharma, under the divine leadership of the Acharyas adorning this Peetam as the Peetadhipathis. Sreemath Hariharapura, being one of those few Dharmapeetams that have been directly established by Sri Adi Shankaracharya, boasts of a prestigious chain of Guruparampara.
