Sharadamba temple in bangalore dating


It housed a sandalwood statue of Shardamba in a standing posture, which was installed by Adi Shankarachaya until the Vijayanagara rulers and Sri Vidyaranya 12th Jagadguru installed a seated gold statue of Sri Shardamba in the 14th century.

Sankara is believed to have envisioned this place as the holiest where a snake hooded as an umbrella to protect a pregnant frog from hot Sun during its labour.
