The Sharada Peetham, (Pakistan-occupied) Kashmir

Today's Newspaper The Hindu carries a news about the temple:


Details about the ancient temple:


// Adi Shankara[edit

It is at this temple that Sankaracharya
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adi_Shankara> received the right to sit on
the *Sarvanjnanapeetham* or *Sarvajna peetha*(*Throne of Wisdom*). The
first verse of 'Prapanchsar' composed by Adi Shankaracharya is devoted to
the praise of the temple's goddess, Sri Śāradā Devi. The Śāradā image
at Shringeri
Sharadamba temple
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shringeri_Sharadamba_temple> in South India
was once said to have been made of sandalwood, which is supposed to have
been taken by Sankaracharya <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adi_Shankara> from
here.[*citation needed//

The mention of the sarvajna peetham in the Madhaviya Shankara Vijaya is
also to be noted.
