Guest Houses

In olden days the Devotees visiting for the Darshan of Goddess Sri Sharada and His Holiness Jagadguru at Sringeri, were to be accommodated at any of the houses at Sringeri.  This was causing a lot of inconvenience to the Devotee as well the residents.  In order to have a comfortable stay at Sringeri and have the darshan of Goddess and Acharya, Sri Sharada Peetham, Sringeri,   constructed  the following Guest houses near the  Sharada Temple.

  1. Sri Shankara Kripa
  2. Sri Sharada Kripa
  3. Yatri Nivas
  4. Sri Bharathi Tirtha Vihara
  5. Sri Shankara Sadana
  6. Sri Srinivasa Kripa constructed by T.T.D
  7. Sri Bharati Tirtha Krupa

The above guest houses are provided to the pilgrims and devotees not on commercial basis but for their comfort.  Hence a minimum Kannikai is collected from the devotees for the usage of the above guest houses in order to maintain the electrical and other amenities.  Further there are dormitory system to accommodate a group of devotees in one hall.  The Guest houses are allotted to the pilgrims/devotees on first come-first serve  basis.  Advance booking of the guest house is not entertained.  For the requirement of Guest House, Pilgrims can approach the Information Office located adjacent to Sri Sharada Temple main entrance.


To cater the need of  devotees a big dining hall namely ‘Sri Bharathi Theertha Prasada’  has been built  near  Sri Sharada Temple, Sringeri  and Nitya Annadana is served to the all devotees in the afternoon and night  between 12.15 P.M. and 2.30 P.M.  and  7.15 P.M.  and  8.30 P.M. respectively.  Nitya Annadana is served for almost 7500 people which includes many schools and colleges, hospitals, etc.
