The socio-religious influence of Ramachandrapura Matha is spread over Malnad, Dakshina Kannada, Uttara Kannada and portion of Kerala. The earliest known stone inscription so far found in Ramachandrapura Matha at Tirthahalli dates back to Sake 1311(A.D.1389).There was a relation between Ramachandrapura Matha and Vijayanagara Empire. About twelve hundred years ago, Sri Adi Shankaracharya established four principal Mathas, at four different parts of India Sringeri in the South, Badari in the North, Dvaraka in the West and Puri in the East. He chose these places probably for the beauty of their natural environment, amidst snow-clad mountains, forests and rivers or on the sea shores - places where heaven and earth meet and transcend man's thoughts to sublime heights.

He placed Sri Sureshwaracharya as the head of the Matha in Sringeri, Sri Padmapadacharya in Dwaraka, Sri Totakacharya in Badari and Sri Hastamalakacharya in Puri. The establishment of these Mathas points to Sri Shankaracharya's realization of the physical and spiritual unity of India.

Sri Shankaracharya toured with his beloved disciple Vidyananda. He visited Gokarna, which was a center of pilgrimage at that time also. He stayed there for sometime and worshiped Bhadrakali, Mahaganapati, Mahabaleshwara and Atmalinga.
