Must Visit Selfie Gallery & Artificial Zoo Model at Udupi Utsava
If you happen to visit Udupi, the temple town during December holidays, then your travel to Udupi has happened during the most pleasant time of the year. Udupi being a coastal town is hot and humid most of the year. Oct to Dec is when the feel of heat and humidity is comparatively less, thus the most ideal time to plan your holiday in the temple town.
Apart from visiting the famous Shri Krishna Temple in Udupi and splashing water at Malpe beach, there is something more you can do at this time of the year.

Several stalls were lined up with home-use products like electronics and decorative items, handicrafts, handloom and readymade garments and many more.
Food lovers also had a gala time here as an excellent food court had been arranged. The Rajasthani pickles, dosa stalls, Chinese eateries, chats and a variety of other mouth-watering snacks stalls were worth trying.
This gallery has been the major attraction of the latest Udupi Utsava event. Young and old, all have been visiting the gallery with curiosity of witnessing how innovatively a selfie can be clicked.
Get yourself blessed by Mother Teresa, greet our former president A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, shake hands with Obama, get bitten by a shark, fight a dragon, milk a cow; oh there are so many ways to get you clicked.
