Shankaracharya Temple

The Shankaracharya also known as Shiva Temple is situated in the Srinagar district on the hill known as Takht-e-Suleiman. It is housed at a height of 1100 ft. above surface level of the main city on the hill. It is believed that Raja Gopadatya got the temple constructed in 371 BC, giving it the name of Gopadri.

The great philosopher Shankaracharya is supposed to have stayed here when he visited Kashmir to revive Sanatan Dharma. This incident, which took place ten centuries ago, led to the renaming of the temple as the Shankracharya temple.

It is dedicated to Lord Shiva . The temple is located on the summit of the Takt- e-suleiman hill overlooking Srinagar town.The temple dates back to 200 B.C.E although the present structure probably dates back to the 9th century C.E.The temple was supposedly visited by the Adishankaracharya and has ever since been associated with it.
