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.

"Wonderful temple & great vegatarian food around the place"

  • 6.50/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
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.

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"

  • 6.00/7
  • 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.

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.

Love to visit there because of its serenity all over the surroundings. It seems that Lord Krishna himself resides here because of its cool and classy environment. Must go place for devotees.

Very nice temple with a quiet atmosphere. You can enjoy the climate and the surroundings. It is worth a visit and it's in the centre of the city. Also you can do shopping around the temple.

"It was a clam and peaceful darshan"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted May 17, 2014
This is such a nice religious place. If you enter the temple or math area you feel a different atmosphere of calmness. Since vehicles are banned from entering the area, it helps to keep the place peaceful. And I feel it is a right decision. The tranquility around the temple has been preserved. Going inside and getting darshan was neatly executed by us. The Brahmins were so very cooperative.
