Sri Laxmisamudra Teertha, the 27th pontiff, built the medium size chariot. He also built the general dining hall in rock stone and installed an idol of Sri Mukhyaprana there. Recently it has been renovated by Sri Vibudesha Theertha of Sri Admar Math during his paryaya (1988-90). The 28th pontiff Sri Laxmindra Teertha, renovated his Math in Udupi and built a new Math in Gopalpur.
