Adi Shankara, also known as Adi Shankaracharya was born either in a village named Kaladi in the state of Karnataka, or in a place called Chidambaram in Tamil Nadu (debatable, as per different texts), and travelled throughout the Indian subcontinent. He propagated his philosophies and established the principles of monastic life- as per the traditions sanctioned in the Upanishads and Brahma Sutras. He is credited for finding the four mathas (apart from Sringeri) in the northern (Jyotirmath, near Badrinath), eastern (Puri) and western (Dwarka) quarters of India- thus promoting historical development, revival and spread of Advaita Vedanta.
