  • A place worth visiting. Such a wonderful feeling once you step inside the temple premises. The whole area has secured the old village feeling by not letting vehicles enter the premises. You walk around and see the whole place and do your shopping,it's a small and lovely village that will mesmerise you. And the kitchen is India's one of the Mega Kitchen which serves about 25-30k devotees every day.
  • For devotees of Lord Krishna. Much cleaner now, than a few years ago. Small, almost like a private temple, still, starting place of a third philosophical view point on life, non-life and the converging entity for both.
  • Very good temple with daily free BHOJANA in the afternoon as well in the night. Located in the centre of the city. Temple environment is also very good.
  • Temple is just awesome. It's 800 year old temple. And they are doing annadhan since then. Temple doesn't look fancy, you have to go through big line to just see krishna statue. But once u see you feel more relieved and it's just amazing place. Come with piece n go with piece
  • One of the famous Temple in India...Udupi Krishna Temple... Must visit place if you in Udupi or Mangalore... Clean and calm... Daily food will be served to all the devotes... Must visit
