Ananteshwar Temple
Ananteshwar temple which is well known as "Manjula Kshetra" and "The temple of 18 towns". Srimad Anantheshwar Temple is located in Manjeshwar which is a small town in Kasaragod district of Northern Kerala. The temple is in existence for more than one thousand years.

Legend says that Parasurama upon recovering land from the sea, coroneted his devotee Ramabhoja as a ruler. The ruler wiped out a snake unintentionally and to get himself off from sarpa dosha he made a silver peetham with a snake cut out on it. Ramabhoja then installed Parasurama in the linga swaroopam and revered him as Ananteswara. Thus the temple of Ananteshwar came into being.

Chandramoulishwar Temple
According to history, the Moon was once cursed by Daksha Prajapati. To get away from the curse, the Moon executed self-mortification. God was pleased and he came out before the Moon and set the Moon free from the curse. And so this place came to be known as Chandramoulishwar meaning Lord Shiva. The place has a famous temple by this name and the temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva.

The Chandramoulishwar temple is Udupi's aajya, or grandfather temple. Every observance at the Krishna Temple always starts with a compulsory visit to this temple.

Kaup Beach
Kaup Beach is located 12 km south of Udupi. It is situated on the coastal belt. The Kaup beach is one of the most beautiful beaches. Its placement is perfect. The beach with the 100 ft high lighthouse on the rocks is a photographer's paradise. The beach is a serene place with nature's beauty in abundance. The sound of the waves caresses the breeze sensuously. A must be visited place for romantic couples. These are the reasons that Kaup Beach is a tourist attraction.

A walk along the rambling white sand beach and the cool blue water of the sea renders a remedial result for wore out souls.

Krishna Temple
According to legend Kanakadasa an ardent believer and worshipper of Lord Krishna was not allowed into the temple. The Lord pleased with his devotee turned the Krishna statue in the temple to allow his disciple to regard his Lord's heavenly form through a little window at the back of the matha. This window is known as the ‘Kanakana Kindi' and is an attractive feature of the temple.
