Visit the museum when its not crowded. Nearby schools usually bring the kids on tour to this museum and it gets packed. There is a lot to see here. keep atleast 2 hour for this place. you will find things you haven't seen before.

Sri Krishna Temple

Reviewed By rakhsup - Pune, India

Diamond studded statue of Lord Krishna inside the sanctum sanctorum. There will be lenghty queue of devotees, so be prepared to spend considerable time. Once inside, it's good to know that no one pushes you and you're given enough time to pray and take a good look at the lord. Suggest to wear decent clothes. Avoid shorts. After the darshan, its strongly suggested to have the prasadam in the form of annadaanam. It was an amazing experience. We were lucky to get the darshan and prasadam and get the blessings of an old priest in the temple.

Virupaksha Temple

Reviewed By SESNoVA - Annandale, Virginia

Pattadakal is a bit off the regular tourist track for non-Indian tourists, and that's a real shame! This place (UNESCO World Heritage site) is amazing! It has a whole series of beautifully maintained and landscaped temples -- all significantly older than the more touristed Hampi -- and is an amazing place to learn about the evolution of temple architecture (because you can see it in each subsequent temple). Well preserved sculptures, and architectural features (like how did the water get out of the temple?) make the visit interesting to visitors interested in art, religion, engineering, history, and all of us who simply enjoy beautiful places.

It is good to visit this place in the evening when the lights and Fountain is on. There is a very beautiful park opposite this temple which looks mesmerising at night when coloured lights flashes in the garden. Do visit some time.

St. Mary's Island

Reviewed By esjay_in - Mangalore, India

This is located about a couple of KM from Udupi. Island is located in the Arabian Sea and you need to get into a barge/Boat for reaching this place. Island consists of beautiful Rock Structures and extensively used by the film Industry. In some of the locations, the rock structure is so beautiful and it looks like the Lava is coming out of the earth and just overflowing or dripping. If it is developed properly, this could be developed as a first class tourist spot. Nevertheless it is a good place to spend an evening.

Hasta Shilpa Heritage Village

Reviewed By sandjasmine - Toronto, Canada

My friend suggested to take my friends who were visiting us in Mangalore to this place. It open ed up to visitors only late last year. This heritage village was a dream of a bank employee who had an eye for antiques. He has single-handedly envisaged and given us what life would have been in the 17th or 18th century. By rebuilding houses, he has created a village showing what life was in a Brahmin, Shetty, christian and Muslim houses. Also, there are paintings of Ravi Varma Museum showing how he printed pictures in the good old days. The highlight is that it is a guided 2 hours tour of 15 visitors at a time. The guides are very involved and give a lot of information and don't mind if it takes a little longer. Very friendly and helpful guides. Price is INR 500/- per person. Closed on Mondays. Definitely a must-see. Hats off to Mr. Vijaynath Shenoy whose project this is. Unfortunately the day we went, he was not there. But he does visit the place every day.
