This is well connected by roads and buses ply every half an hour from Mangalore. The specialty of the temple is the idol of Lord Krishna which is adorned with heavy jewelry. It is believed that the Math was built by staunch supporters of Lord Krishna who have contributed in the construction of it.
History
It is believed that the temple in the form of Matha was found by Shri Madhwacharya somewhere in the 13th century. He was a staunch Vaishnavite and also the founder of Dvaita literature. Story tells that there was once a staunch devotee of Lord Krishna named Kanakadasa, It worshipped the lord day and night performing all the rituals. He used to sit infront of the Matha and perform his meditation daily. Once day, there was a huge earthquake which caused a crack in the Matha. Miraculously, the crack was only so thick, that Kanakadasa, was able to glance and worship the lord Krishna. That crack today is known as Kanakanakhindi. It is the same spot where the temple has been built, as seen today. In fact, the devotees can worship the Lord only through this Kanakanakhind which has been kept intact ever since.
Importance/Significance
The temple holds high religious importance as it is one of the eight Matha dedicated to Lord Krishna. People flock in from all over India to get a glimpse of the Lord and ask him for his blessings.
Facts/Mythology
A unique fact about the temple is that it is entirely managed by Astha Mathas which refers to the wight temples dedicated to Lord Krishna.

It helps to promote literature by offering free education to the children below 14 years of age.Another unique fact about the temple is that anyone can peep in and see through Kanakanakhind to worship Lord Krishna. This bars any restriction in terms of caste, creed or color.
