Udupi Sri Krishna Temple Udupi, Karnataka, India
Udupi Krishna Matha is a famous temple dedicated to Bhagavan Krishna in Karnataka town of Udupi.
The Krishna Matha was founded by the Vaishnavite saint Shri Madhwacharya in the 13th century. He was the founder of the Dvaita school of Vedanta. It is believed that Madhwacharya found the idol of SriKrishna in a large ball of gopichandana.
As told by Sri Madhwacharya in his TANTRASARA SANGRAHA the Idol is placed Pashimabhimukha. All the other idols in other Ashta mutts are facing Western side as well. Once Kanakadasa, a pious worshiper and devotee of Lord Krishna, was staying in a makeshift hermitage in front of Krishna mutt. There was an earthquake in the night and the outer temple wall cracked such a way that there was a wide enough opening for Kanakadasa to have darshana of the idol. Till today, devotees still worship Lord Krishna by praying through the same window where kanakadasa was seeing the offerings/Pooja from outside.It is known as Kanakanakhindi. --Wikipedia
