Udupi is a place which is synonymous with Lord Krishna and that is the reason Krishnashtami here is celebrated with unique traditional pomp and gaiety.

For people in coastal Karnataka, Sri Krishna Janmashtami is not a mere festival of the birth of Lord Krishna but a festival to share happiness with lots of fun and entertainment. Janmashtami for locals is incomplete without Mosaru Kudike and huli vesha. Mosaru Kudike is a festival similar to ‘Dahi Handi’ celebrated in Maharashtra and other parts of North India.

Every street in the city will be geared up to make the festival more ritualistic and also entertaining. While a section of the Hindu community who follow Tuluva Panchanga celebrate it on September 5 and 6, it is celebrated as ‘Naada Habba’ all over the city and the temple town is gearing up for the celebrations.

On September 6 – the Vittlapindi day, Sri Laxmivaratheertha Swamiji of Shiroor Math will garland the huli vesha participants. Accordingly, the Swamiji has prepared garlands of Rs 50 and Rs 100 currency notes worth Rs 6 lakh.
