Shri Puthige Matha

Together, We Can Build Awareness for Change

Shri Puthige Matha is one among the eight Mathas that was established by Shri Madhwacharaya to perform the rituals to Lord Shri Krishna at Shri Krishna Matha, Udupi and also to propagate Dwaitha philosophy. The main branch of Shri Matha is located in a village called Puthige, which is about 20 Kms away from Udupi and hence derives its name. Every Mathas gets an opportunity to manage the activities of Shri Krishna Matha and to perform rituals to Lord Shri Krishna for a term of two consecutive years. Shri Puthige Matha takes charge of management for every fourth term.

Last Paryaya (Alternation): January, 2008 – January, 2010. Next Paryaya (Alternation): January, 2024 -- January, 2026.
