Shri Chandrashekharendra Saraswati Swamigal

    The strenuous efforts and support of devotees and wellwishers yielded fruits and the first Mahakumbhabhishekam was traditionally and ceremoniously held on 9 June 1985 and the Mandir was declared as Shri Uttara Chidambaram Nataraja Mandir.

   Shri Uttara Chidambaram Nataraja Mandir has made a niche in the map of Indian temples. In February 2010, the Mandir has also celebrated its silver jubilee. Notwithstanding the tremendous resource constraints, the Mandir was able to assemble over 200 Vedic Scholars from all over India for 11 days to perform Athi Rudra Yaga and Shatha Chandi Homa to the great delight of Satara for the first time in its history. All thanks to the Mahaswamigal, says Shri Bhat.

    For, Ramesh Shanbhag,  Bhat and a dedicated team of others involved in managing the Mandir against all odds, the  presence of the centurian Mahaswamigal, in spite of his Samadhi on 8 January 1994, is a living reality. "It is his grace that keeps us going", echoes reverently Ramesh Shanbhag, the eldest son of Late Shamanna, the founder trustee of the Mandir. Any wonder that the Mandir is etched in the minds of lakhs of devotees thronging it as the Mahaswamigal's Nataraja Mandir? And the thus the vision and mission of the Mahaswamigal lives on.
