The matha was founded by Adi Sankara of Kaladi, and that Jayendra Saraswati Swami is the current pontiff – The 69th head in succession, tracing its history back to the fifth century BCE. Sri Adi Sankara came to Kanchipuram, and that he established the Kanchi matha named “Dakshina Moolamnaya Sarvagnya Sri Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam” in a position of supremacy (Sarvagnya Peetha) over the other mathas of the subcontinent, before his attaining samadhi there. The Kamakoti Peetam however, traditionally refers to Kamakshi referred popularly as Kamakodi. ‘Kamakodi’ is of Tamil origin, referring to Goddess Durga. ‘Kodi’ refers to Durga in the ancient Tamil Sangam literature. Kanchipuram is referred to as Kachi. The Vyakarana Mahabhashya of Patanjali uses the word ‘Kanchi’ and it can be thus understood that the word Kanchi also has a Sanskrit base.
