Under his expert captaincy, the ship weathering every storm reached the shores of adorable Hindu Dharma and in course of time it became Dhakshina Kasi, forming one of the 108 divya kshetras of the Punya Bharat. Being a polymath, he authored many masterpieces on almost all branches of knowledge, particularly religion, like Bhashvas on the Vedas, Parasara smriti, Sarvadarsana Sangraha etc. The rulers believing in his remarkable spiritual powers carried on his behests with implicit faith that made the kingdom flourish in every direction. He achieved such spectacular success, while still on the gadi of Sringeri Mutt. So the entire credit goes to the Saradapitaha, which enjoyed the honour of having illustrious acharyas, who could wield powers over spiritual and secular worlds with equal efficiency. But some contradictions arose that Vidyaranya was different from Madhava, who was primarily responsible for the glory of Vijayanagara. Evidence unfortunately does not adequately support the rival claims to their satisfaction. Identification of Vidyaranya with Madhava is yet accepted by majority. Dispassionate inference goes infavour of Madhava, the powerful Amatyasekhar who shaped the empire in the initial stage was Vidyanarayanaswamy himself. He built a famous shrine called Vidyasankar at Sringeri through munificence of Vijayanagara rulers at that time. Its architectural design and spiritual eminence are of unique type that deserve close study.
