Adi Sankara Nilayam
Adi Sankara Nilayam is the sacred birth home of Sri Adi Sankaracharya, the great philosopher, saint and exponent of Advaita Vedanta. This home of Aryamba, his holy mother, is located in Veliyanad, Edakkattuvayal Village, in the Ernakulam District of Kerala. Known historically as ‘Melpazhur Mana’, this place has been fittingly renamed by Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda as ‘Adi Sankara Nilayam’. ‘Nilayam’ means abode, residence or living place and thus Adi Sankara Nilayam connotes the abode of Sri Sankara and his vision and mission.
