Shri Krishna Temple of Udupi is among the highly revered Hindu shrines dedicated to God Krishna. The temple resembles an ashram and is also referred as Shri Krishna Math. It is one of the most ancient shrines made of wood and stone dating back to 1,500 years.

The main highlight of the temple is Navagraha Kitiki, a window with nine holes, from where the Lord is worshipped. This window is beautifully decorated with silver and is intricately carved. Devotees from all over the country pay homage at the site during the festivals such as Ugadi, Matsya Jayanti, Ram Navami and Hanuman Jayanti.

"A nice temple in the heart of the town"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
The temple is nice. But the maintenance could have been improved. When the queue is longer and if it rains it gets worse. But overall it's nice. There is no entry fee, everyone has to come through the same queue that's what we like most about it.

"Spiritual place"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Jan 8, 2016
A better spiritual place where a miracle happened for a man called Kanaka Dasa. And other thing to say is in the temple they are having Cows, well cared. Spiritual shopping is good and prasadam facility for all peoples is good. In spite of casteism peoples are welcome for the temple.

"A divine feeling"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Nov 22, 2015
Very divine feeling, one must visit this temple. Other mutts are nearby who take turns in performing puja each year. Accommodation is possible nearby, this temple entrance is from the back, we are told (normally all temples are from the front).

"Historical and religious Centre at Udupi"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Oct 14, 2015
Sri Krishna Temple is one of the most religious and also historical place to visit. Very attractive idol of Sri Krishna is worth seeing. The food served in the afternoon to all visitors is really a great prasada to cherish.

"Wonderful temple & great vegatarian food around the place"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Jul 27, 2015
This is a wonderful temple that I have been visiting once every few years. The temple has an old world charm and interesting stories associated with it. However for me the best part is the annadanam(food offering) made by the temple in the hall above, the food is fresh, hot and tasty. It is free, as it is the offering that is shared with good intent, this should not be missed.

"Nice environment"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Apr 6, 2015
The temple and environment are very nice. Nice view and we had enjoyed more. We went to Malpe beach near by the Udipi. I suggest you to wear dhotis to go that temple.

"A good and maintained temple to be visited"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Sep 29, 2014
The temple complex is well maintained and kept clean at all time. I looked at it from architect's point of view. Lots of seating space is provided however, it be devoid of trees, which is sad. The car street has restricted vehicular entry that makes ample space for people of gather during festivals. The built structures are all functioning and the priest seems to be very helpful in explaining the day's routine.

  • Posted Sep 18, 2014
As we had a pooja, the stay was long, the serene atmosphere, the feeling of devotion and the lovely idol of the Lord make us want to come repeatedly.
