Art & Culture

Udupi, an important Teerthasthal (pilgrimage place) with its historical Krishna Temple is the cultural center of Karnataka. The district, carved out of Dakshina Kannada district two years ago, has its own identity in the field of art and culture. 

The temple town has seen the birth of many great personalities of national and international fame, whose intellectual contribution is commendable. Great littérateurs like Late Dr. K Shivarama Karanth, Dr U R Ananthamurthy and Girish Karnad, the Jnanapeeth award winners hail from this place. Other littérateurs and critics like Late Pa Vem Acharya, N Vyasaraya Ballal, also have their lineage to this land. Well known artistes like Late K K Hebbar, Late B P Bairi dedicated their lives for the promotion and spread of art.

Yakshagana, Taalamaddale, Gombeyaata, Bhoota worship, Naaga worship,  Koti Chennaya Nema, Garaodis, temples, cock-fight are the reminiscence of the rich past and glory of this magical land.
