Udupi, known as the Vaishnava pilgrimage town, is located 60 km from Mangalore in Karnataka state, India. This was the sanctum of Madhwacharaya, the great Sanskrit philosopher and the founder of Dvaita (dualism) philosophy of Hinduism. This place is much renowned for its Krishna Temple and mutts.
The main attraction of Udupi Sri Krishna Temple is the Kanakana Kindi (a small window) and is believed that through this window Lord Krishna have given darshan to his ardent devotee, Kanakadasa – a saint minstrel.
In Udupi‘s Sri Krishna Mutt, it was Sri Madhawacharya who had installed the idol of Lord Krishna. He had anointed eight seers to worship Lord Krishna on a rotational basis. Instead of the front door, the mutt has a window through which one can always get the darshan of the idol inside.
