Udupi is an important tourist spot in the Coastal Karnataka Circuit and the Udupi Railway Station is a nice little railway station on the Konkan Railway section. Listing down some tips based on my experience:

1. The Station Premises:
This station is located at an elevated level and hence you must walk up to reach the station. One elevator and a ramp
is available for the convenience.

2. Waiting Rooms:
Both Ladies only waiting room as well as general waiting room is available on Platform no 1 near the 10th coach position from MAO end.

3. Lodging:
A. Namah Dormitory: Namah Dormitory is available on the first floor. Contact Details provided in the attached image.
B. Private Lodging: Shri Jayadurga Boarding and Lodging is a hotel that is located at one hundred mts from the station. Cannot comment on the service as I have not availed it yet. Contact Details provided in the attached image.
C. Airbnb: Some great AIR BNB Apartments are available at the centre of the city.

4. Platforms:
Udupi has two platforms with the Platform no 1 being the primary platform where most of the amenities are located.

5. Cloak Room and Luggage Parcel Office:
A Cloak Room is available to keep your luggage safely on PF 1 near the 8th Coach Position from Madgaon end. Make sure your luggage is locked properly with lock (taala), otherwise they will not accept it. The Parcel Office is adjacent to the Cloak Room.

6. Food:
I have noted that exceptionally good South Indian snacks are available on Platform no 1 but did not get a chance to try it out and hence cannot comment.

7. Important Attractions to cover:
Udupi is a very serene place and highly under-rated. There is extremely high potential in Udupi to be better than Goa. Listing down some must visit places of attractions of Udupi:

A. Bengre Delta Point:
This is the confluence of two rivers with the Arabian Sea: Sita and Swarna
B. The Amazing Bridges:
Three bridges in the Moodukudru Area (all called Moodukudru Bridge) provides magnificent views of the backwaters. Kemmannu Hanging Bridge is a wonderful man-made creation but temporarily closed in Jan 2024. Kemthur Hanging Bridge is a wonderful, offbeat location which is very less frequented but a hidden gem.
C. Malpe Beach:
A very crowded beach like the Juhu Beach in Mumbai but it is a very well maintained and clean beach. You can visit the St Mary's Island from the boats available at this beach which charge four hundred Rs Per Person for a 1.5-hour circuit. Ferry to St Mary's Island is also available near the Malpe Sea Walk that charge three hundred Rs Per Person
D. Malpe Sea Walk:
A nice promenade created going inside the sea.
E. Shri Krishna Math:
A prominent temple of Shri Krishna right in the centre of the city. Prasadam Timings: 11.30 am to 3 pm and 7.30 pm to 10.30 pm.
F. The Must Visit Food Joints:
MTR Restaurant, Mitra Samaj, Diona Hotel for Gadbad Ice Cream and Thimmappa Fish Restaurant for Sea Food

Have a safe trip.

Further two points on Udupi station in addition to the points given in my station tips given on 22nd February 18.

(1) There is a small but clean waiting room at Udupi rail station. Its' capacity is only 14 and must have been designed in the late 1990s when KR was still a kid. There are two toilets for men and women. The mens toilet was very clean. It was a western style toilet with a hygiene faucet. Any one irrespective of their ticketing class can use the waiting room

(2) For hard core KR fans, you may like to discover a ''stone'' on Platform 1 which says '' First engine arrived at Udupi Railway station on 4th January 1993''. It must have been an exciting day for the KR staff and the citizens of Udupi. It is nice that someone was clever enough to decide on having a commemorative stone on this historic day

Famous for Lord Krishna Temple located about 3 kms from Railway station. The main door is shut and Lord Krishna, in child avatar can be seen facing the Kanakadasa kidiki or kanakadasa's window.
Kanakadasa was a saint who sang praises in name of Lord. He wasnt allowed to enter the temple so he stood by the side and started singing. Hearing his songs, the Lord turned towards the window and slammed the main door shut and hence practice of seeing Lord through window continues till today

Located about 6 kms from Udupi is the famous Malpe beach. Though a very small beach, its a very picturesque location.
About 6 kms from the shore is the famous St. Mary's island, consisting of Geologically formed Basaltic Lava rocks all over. Boat rides available at about Rs. 150 per person to reach the island, spend about an hour there and return back. Boat services are available from 9AM to 3PM and boat runs only if atleast 20 tickets are booked
Its serious a beauty to visit the island and the ride
through the sea is a fantastic journey by itself. If you are a camera amateur, a good place for improving your skills
Regular town buses (private) available from Udupi Town bus stand (About 400 metres away from KSRTC bus stand). Watch out for buses going to Malpe beach rather than ones to Malpe town as beach is almost 2 kms from Malpe Town bus stand. Buses are available at average frequency of 20 mins once from Udupi

If you get stranded at Udupi in the night and are looking for sleeping options you have the retiring room which has three beds. Booking for the retiring room can be done on If this you cannot get, then there is a 'boarding and lodging' hotel just opposite the station ( I am sorry but I cant remember the name)

There is a Veg Refreshment Room in the basement. There is a stair case going down right opposite the booking windows

There is a stall selling 'ethinic' food an the platform (further away on the left side as you enter the platform #1. Serves Mirchi bhajjis, Mangaluru Bondas etc and if you are lucky you could get them hot as the frying is done in front of you. Mirchi Bajjis cost Rs 20 for 4 pieces and you can convince him to give 2 pieces for Rs 10.

Please look at the date of the magazines before you buy magazines. The stall selling magazines display the older issues while 'hiding' the latest issues

Most trains arrive at Platform #1. If you are unlucky and the train lands at platform #2, the FOB is at a high level and you may find it hard to shift to platform # 1

There is a NESTLE stall towards the Kundapura end of Platform # 1 which serves noodles, coffee and chilled mineral water. You can get a tub of noodles for Rs 25
