Establishment of Math Branch
Jagadguru Sri Abhinava Vidyateertha Mahaswamy paid visits to Ankola & Karwar staying at Sri Padmanabha Teertha Swamy math at Baad, Karwar. Later on, on the way to Goa in the year 1967 again the people of Karwar had the opportunity to have the blessings of Maha Sannidhanam. Mahasannidhanam was impressed by seeing the surroundings of Baad Math and expressed his view to have Sri Sringeri Shankar Math nearby. Sri Ramachandra Nagappa Shetti donated his own land of 17 Guntas situated at Phatarpekar Road in the midst of the city and respectfully invited His Holiness for laying foundation stone.
Mahasannidhanam along with Sannidhanam Jagadguru Sri Sri Bharati Tirtha Mahaswamigal, laid the foundation stone on 8th December, 1975. Both the Swamijis had arrived in Karwar on 7th December, 1975 and they were welcomed in very grand manner by a huge gathering of Karwar people. The procession of both the swamijis in Phallakkis has been outstanding and the sweet memories are still there in the hearts of the people of Karwar.
