The philosopher Shankaracharya stayed at this site when he visited Kashmir ten centuries ago to revive Sanatan Dharma. Before this date, the temple was known as Gopadri, as an earlier edifice on the same site was built by king GopadUya in the 6th century. In fact the road below the hill, with residences of high- ranking State Government officials, is still known as Gupkar road. more....
