Pajaka


Pajaka is located at a distance of 9 km from Udupi. Pajaka is birthplace of Dwaita philosopher Madhwacharya. Madhvacharya is also known by name "Poornaprajna" and "Anandathirta".

The most important place to see in Pajaka is ancestral home and birthplace of Sri Madhwacharya. There is also a Madhva Mandira very close to the house. Many religious activities take place here and it is also a Vidyapeeta where are students taught Vedas and Sanskrit.
The Kunjarugiri Durga temple is also a charming place to visit. The temple is located on top of a hill. This hill is also known as `Durga betta' and the hill offers some wonderful sceneries of Udupi.

The 4 theerthas on 4 sides of the hill are Parasu Teertha, Dhanus Teertha, Gada Teertha and Bana Teertha. It is believed that these theerthas are created by Lord Parashurama and all the sins will be washed out after taking bath in these teerthas.
