Kaancheepuram is a very important place.
Why is Kaancheepuram known as a Mukti Sthal?
There are seven Mukti Sthal in the country of India - Ayodhyaa, Kaashee, Dwaarakaa and Kaancheepuram.
(see also Parashuraam Kshetra)
The Kaanchee Math is not recognized by other Math in Shringeri (Karnaatak), Dwaarakaa (Gujaraat) and Josheemath (UP). To say that the Kaanchee Math is not among the original Math is wrong. In fact this Math is the Mool Math or the main Math and all others are its branches. It was in Kaanchee that Aadi Shankar attained Mukti and also established the Chakra in the Kaamaakshee Ammaan Temple. Whether the Math is recognized by others or not, that doesn't matter much.
