Shri Madhava Thirtha, entered brindavan at Hampi and his mortal remains were later shifted to Mannur near Gulbarga. The seat of the pontificate was then moved from Mannur to Thambihalli.

Moola Vigraha of the Mutt –

Srimadwacharya kararchita Sri Veera Rama idol

ಒಮ್ಮೆ ಇವರು ಪೂಜೆಗೆ ಕುಳಿತಿದ್ದಾಗೆ, ಇದ್ದಕ್ಕಿದ್ದ ಹಾಗೇ ತಾವು ಕುಳಿತಿದ್ದ ಜಾಗದಿಂದ ಸ್ವಲ್ಪ ದೂರ ಹೋಗಿ ತಮ್ಮ ಎರಡೂ ಕೈ ಜೋಡಿಸಿ ನಮಸ್ಕರಿಸತೊಡಗಿದರು.  ಅಲ್ಲಿ ಬೇರೆಯವರಿಗೆ ಯಾರೂ ಕಾಣಲಿಲ್ಲ.  ಮಾಧವತೀರ್ಥರು ಆ ಅದೃಶ್ಯನ ಕೈಲಿಯೇ ತೀರ್ಥವನ್ನೂ ಸ್ವೀಕರಿಸಿದರು.  ಬೇರೆಯವರಿಗೆ ಅಲ್ಲಿ ಏನು ನಡೆಯುತ್ತಿದೆಯೆಂದು ಅರ್ಥವಾಗಲೇ ಇಲ್ಲ.  ನಂತರ ಪೂಜೆಯಾದ ಮೇಲೆ ಕುತೂಹಲವನ್ನು ತಡೆಯಲಾರದೆ ಶಿಷ್ಯರು –  ನೀವು ಯಾರಿಗೆ ಕೈ ಮುಗಿದಿದ್ದು? ಯಾರಿಂದ ತೀರ್ಥ ಸ್ವೀಕರಿಸಿದ್ದು? ಎಂದು ಪ್ರಶ್ನಿಸಲು, ಮಾಧವತೀರ್ಥರು ಹೇಳಿದರು.   ಅಲ್ಲಿ ಪೂಜೆ ಮಾಡುತ್ತಿದ್ದುದು ಶ್ರೀಮದ್ವಾಚಾರ್ಯರೇ.  ಅವರೇ ಪ್ರತ್ಯಕ್ಷ ಬಂದು ಪೂಜಿಸುತ್ತಿದ್ದುದನ್ನು ನೋಡಿ ನಮಸ್ಕರಿಸಿದೆ.  ನಂತರ ಮಧ್ವಾಚಾರ್ಯರು ತೀರ್ಥವನ್ನು ತಾವು ತೆಗೆದುಕೊಂಡು ನನಗೂ ನೀಡಿದರು ಎಂದರು”

Once he was sitting for pooja.  All of a sudden, he got up from the pooja seat and did namaskara by joining both his hands and took theertha from some body.  But no one was seen there.  The shishyas were surprised at this and they questioned as to from whom he took the theertha and did namaskara.  They got the reply that Acharya Madhwa was doing the pooja and was doing the pooja of the idols which he had given it to Madhava Tirtha and that he took the tirtha himself and gave to me also.    It means that Sri Madhava Tirtharu saw Acharya Madhwa even after he reached Badarikashrama.
