Lord Krishna purappadu - Udupi Krishna Mandiram, Thiruvallikkeni

Have earlier posted of the ‘Krishna Jayanthi’ celebrations at Thiruvallikkeni  on 8th Sept. 2012.   The day of birth of  Lord  Krishna is celebrated all over, in a manner that  Lord Krishna is born in every house.   People celebrate at home by painitng the  footsteps of little Krishna in their houses, have the vigraha of Krishna adorn new clothes and offer choicest dishes and fruits to the Lord.  Similarly, the birth of Lord is celebrated as ‘Sri Jayanthi’ in very many temples.

Udupi Sri Krishna Matha is a famous Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Krishna located in the town of Udupi in Karnataka.  The Mutt reportedly  resembles a living ashram, a holy place for daily devotion and living. Surrounding the Sri Krishna Matha are several temples, the most ancient being made of basic wood and stone of 1,500 years origin.  Pejawar is a village located in the Mangalore taluk of Dakshina Kannada, formerly known as South Canara.  It houses one of the eight ashta Mutts established by  Sri Madhvacharya.    In Triplicane, there is a branch of the Udupi Krishna Mandiram situate at Sunkuvar street.

The day after Sri Jayanthi, Lord Krishna idol of this Mutt was taken on a rath and here are some photos of that purappadu.
