Adwaidashramam, the most important centre established by Shri Narayana Guru, for the propagation of his philosophy is situated at Aluva, in central Kerala. During the time when the Guru had been visiting many places as a Seer along with Shrimath Chattampi Swamikal, they used to take rest under a tree at Aluva, where the Adwaidashramam was established later. That particular place was known as "Vadarathu Banglavu" at that time, which was blessed with natural beauty and an enchanting river Poorna. The Guru might have thought of establishing an ashram at that place. More
