Sharada Peeth

Sharada Peeth, PoK, Jammu and KashmirMeditation: I meditate on the ancient Sharada Peeth of Kashmir where Shandilya rishi performed penance and Adi Shankara ascended the Sarvajna Peetham.

Sharada Peeth: Sharada Peeth is an ancient temple of Devi Sharada located in the Neelam Valley of Kashmir Himalayas. Goddess Sharada who embodies learning, beauty and arts was the presiding deity of Kashmir in ancient times. That is why Kashmir was known as Sharada Desha or Sharada Peetha..

Penance of Shandilya Rishi: According to Sharada Mahatmya, Devi Sharada gave darshan to Shandilya Rishi when he performed penance at Sharada Vana in the upper Kishenganga valley of north Kashmir.

Adi Shankara ascending the Sarvajna Peetham: It is also in this temple that Adi Shankara ascended the Sarvajna Peetham (Throne of Wisdom).

• Sharada Peeth is located in the PoK region of Jammu and Kashmir.
