The twin temples of Janardhan and Mahakali of recent origin, built at Ambalapudi near Udipi in the South Canara district of Karnataka have certain unique features that brought fame to the builders and laurels to this Krishna Kshetra. This was a great Jain Kshetra, and the then ruling king in return for the invaluable assistance rendered by Kandavara family gave away the region to it. Sridhara Nidumbarayar, an illustrious member of the said family started making improvements in every field. He built an elegant temple with modernity exuding from every frame of construction and installed his household deities- Mahakali and Janardhana swamy. Several devotional activities carried on later attracted the public attention and when the presiding deities too began showering grace on the worshippers more than their expectation, its fame rose up with meteoric speed.

The Mahakali temple faces west in contra distinction to the normal procedure of Kali shrines facing east always, may be to protect the people from the fear of Yama whose seat lies in the west. It is adjacent to the Janardhana swamy temple.
