  • Very beautiful and ancient temple of Lord Sri Krishna. Once visited you will feel very devotional and you will get peace of mind. Feast in the afternoon is there every day, free. Heavy crowded during festivals and vacation seasons. Festival is very famous and a lot of people from various parts of the country visit here. Even you can see foreigners here. Temple is maintained very well.
  • Very beautiful Temple. Krishna idol is unique than other places. The idol is holding churner instead of flute. The place is neat and calm. If you are lucky you will get to see procession of God in gold or precious stone Chariott. Place has ample parking facilities.
  • Sri Krishna Maths is one of the Ancient and beautiful temple in udupi.you will feel peace of mind temple has feast facility for devotees everyday. surroundings are well maintained.. Good service from the temple.Also provides good parking facility.
  • Ancient temple. Very well maintained. Ample parking. Free food for devotees. The petite Krishna idol is a feast for the eyes. Avoid visiting the temple on festival days or weekends if you want to have good peaceful darshan. On crowded days you just get a glimpse for few seconds. On ordinary days, we can stand there for a few minutes. All men HAVE to remove their shirts/ upper wear. So be prepared. Teens might get embarrassed sometimes, so keep a shawl handy to wrap. That is allowed. It is called shalya. Honestly, i don't get the logic behind this, but it's strictly followed here. Very beautiful temple.
  • If you a Krishna devotee you gonna love this place. Wonderful architecture of temple. Along with Krishna temple there are lots of Shiva temples near by which you should visit. Don't forget to have the prasadam which they serve inside the temple for free.
