Kanchi Sankaracharya Jayendra Saraswathi and his junior Vijayendra Saraswathi on Wednesday returned to the Kanchi mutt after a gap of several months.

The two seers, arrested in connection with the Sankararaman murder case and later camping at nearby Kalavai, performed the puja there and left for Kanchi mutt.

The Seers were accorded a traditional welcome by the devotees on their arrival. They later performed a religious ceremony and were presented two elephants and two umbrellas. Jayendra also offered 'arthi' to the idol of Adi Sankara, Mutt sources said.

The Sankaracharyas chose this day for returning to the mutt as it was auspicious, they said.
