The Shankaracharya Temple is a beautiful and mesmerising temple that is situated on the Gopadari Hills on the south-east of Srinagar at the height of 1,100 feet above the sea level. Built in the dedication of Lord Shiva, the temple is also known as the Jyoteshwar Temple or the Pas-Pahar by Buddhists and overlooks the entire magnificent city of Srinagar. The architecture and style of construction of the entire temple are quite charming.
