  • Very famous temple in udupi. Well maintained. Peaceful place. Crowded place. Large parking area. Some good hotels & restaurants near for travellers. Must visit :)
  • Very beautiful temple. The Krishna deity idol has been decked up with beautiful diamond ornaments and stands south facing which is the uniqueness of this idol. The visit to the temple on Sunday needs one to wait in the queue for a longer time, compared to the other days of the week. There is a parking space outside the temple. The food is served till 3.00 pm daily to all the visitors. A family visit would be nice idea if you plan to go to this place.
  • Its most famous Krishna temple in South India. It's beautiful and attracts enormous devotees. I visited the place around Krishna Janmashtmi time that's the birthday of lord Krishna. There were numerous cultural activities organized in the auditorium. They also serve food at the temple for all the devotees.
