BALAKRISHNA OF UDIPI

Crossing the temple office lying to the right, we reach the eastern entrance passing past the Madvasara. Here the status of Chennakesava is installed at the entrance. When proceeded further we see the pradakshanapatha. And here lies the famous hall of oblation of Fire-god. Next comes the Suryasala intended for the scholars to recite scriptures. It is here the pipers and musicians sit and offer prayers in the evenings. Another sacred small room lying to the west treasures up all the invaluable jewels endowed to the Lord by great rulers from the days of Vijayanagara empire right up to the modern wealthy devotees. A big mantap lying to the right comes next into our view. In between this and garbhagriha there is a small passage and a window. This august window goes by the name of Navagrahakitiki - has nine square holes. And it is through this window alone the visitors see the archamurthi. The garbha griha has no entrance front or back side for public. A curious feature! Everyone - high or low is allowed to avail the darsan of the Lord through this window, covered with artistically carved silver plates.Ah! What a tradition! How unique! Nay, it is unique of uniques never found any where in a Krishna temple and in any point of time. The statues of Jaya Vijaya, the eternal sentinels are seen on either side of this holy window. It is decorated with the carvings of dasavataras of Lord Vishnu.
