Which attracts us, to lotus like feet of our Guru,
Which cures us, of the unwanted desires,
And which helps fulfill the desires of those who salute."

nearer from this location. Sri Ramar first choose this location to go to Sri Lanka. But since this
route will reach backside (otherside) of Sri Lanka, He went to Lanka via Rameswaram Sethu
Karai. Near Kodiyakarai Ramar padham is also called as Point Calimere. This forest is called
as Kodiyakadu and one can see lot of Deers and Monkey. A beautiful place everybody must
visit to have darshan of Ramar Thiruvadi!
Adi Shankara's ivory padukas in a golden case!
The below One is the Sri Paduka of Srimad Acharyal Himself (Adi Shankara), which is present in our SriMatam only and in no other Mutt. This Paduka, covered with several layers of gold, is actually made of ivory, and has imprints of Srimad Acharyal's Padaravindam. With this same Paduka, the Bala Sanyasin (Adi Shankara) made Bharatha holy by treading across, spreading Sanathana Dharma and Advaita Siddhantha.
Thanks a ton to Shri Sudarshan for this treasure. Just one look at it will erase all our sins!
