Samadhi Mandapam of Sreemath Bodhananda Swamikal

Bodhananda Swamikal was the dearest disciple of Guru during his life time.  Guru made a will in favour of Bodhananda Swamikal in which the right of the whole properties of Sivagiri Mutt will be vested with him after the demise of Guru. The future assets which will be acquired by the Mutt will also be vested with him.  He was considered as the first successor of the Guru.  He attained samadhi just after three days of the demise of Guru.  His eternal body was cremated here and this Samadhi Mandap was built in memory of Bodhananda Swamikal.
