A Tribute to Sudama

The temple is dedicated to childhood friend and devotee of Shri Krishna. The temple is in old port town and this area is renamed with Sudamapuri. Here is a maze in the temple and it is believed that crossing the maze helps to remove one's sin. Devotee comes here throughout year. It is believed that Sudama went on bare footed from here to Dwaraka.

A visiting temple

Krishna Sudama Temple in Porbandar is a famous visiting spot for tourists. It is approximately 1 km from bus stand. The mandir and the compound area are well-maintained. Sudama being the close and intimate friend of God Sri Krishna, the visiting of this temple is a good thing. Since the temple is in the center of the town, no difficulty for any kind of purchase.

Interesting temple

Mainly for Krishna worshippers, it is worth a visit in any case while in Porbandar. The surrounding areas are crowded but the temple premises are quite serene and calm. Some interesting architecture and maintenance needs improvement.

Pleasant Feeling

Visiting Krishna- Sudama Temple made me feel very happy. There are trees all around and thousands of birds chirping on each of the branches made me feel all the more happy. I feel the temple premises could be kept more clean.
