Sri Krishnapura MaTha
Krishnapura Matha - Kaliya Mardana

Krishnapura Matha - Kaliya Mardana

The third maTha under Udupi aShTa maThas is Sri KrishnApura MaTha. It has its main branch in the village KrishnApura near Surathkal in DK district, Karnataka. The first yati of this maTha was Sri Janaardana teertha, a direct disciple of Sri Madhwacharya.

The icon of Kaliya mardana Krishna with two hands was gifted to the first yati by Sri Madhva. The icon is in the attractive pose of Krishna as a child with one leg on the serpent Kaliya and the other leg lifted up. He is holding the tail of the serpent in his left hand. His right hand is in the mudra of abhaya to those who are afraid of the poison.

At the request of Sri Janaardana teertha, Sri Madhva had also given him another icon. It is of Sri Ugra Narasimha who is in the pose of holding Hiranyakashipu on his lap and tearing away his stomach with two hands. The remaining six hands hold various weapons. At the foot of this eight handed ferocious Narasimha is the tiny Prahlada standing with folded hands.
