WHAT ARE TOUR PACKAGES?

A package tour comprises of transport and accommodation advertised and sold together by a vendor known as a tour operator. Other services may be provided such a rental car, activities or outings during the holiday. Transport can be via charter airline to a foreign country, and may also include travel between areas as part of the holiday. Package holidays are organized by a tour operator and sold to a consumer by a travel agent.

A brief history of Udupi Sri Krishna Matha

Udupi Sri Krishna Math is a famous temple dedicated to Lord Krishna, and is located in the picturesque state of Udupi. The temple was founded in the 13th century by the Vaishnavaite saint Shri Madhwacharya- the founder of the dwaita school of Vedanta. It is believed that Shri Madhwacharya found the murthi of Sri Krishna in a ball of Gopichandana. The Matha has an ashram like atmosphere, where prayers and religious activities are preformed throughout the day.

The story of Kanakanakindi

Legend has it that once Kanakadasa, a devout follower of Sri Krishna was not allowed to visit the temple on account of him being an untouchable. However, impressed by his devoutness, the lord’s idol turned from east to west and a crack developed on the wall which was enough to give Kanakadasa his darshana. Even today, the statue stands in this altered position and devotees get to worship the lord through this crevice which is now known as Kanakana Kindi.

Daily administration

The daily temple administration and activities are managed by the Ashta Mathas, where each of the eight mathas take over responsibilities in a cycle of two years each. The Matha is the center of Dwaita philosophy and the epicentre of the Dasa sahitya- which gave rise to simple and easy to understand literature that centred on Lord Krishna and his teachings.

Visiting Udupi Sri Krishna Math is a matter of great pride for many, and it is seen as an important place of pilgrim.
