Udupi Station has only some light refreshment stalls on PF 1. PF2 has only a small strip of shelter like a village R.S.
The station is slightly on an elevated level. There is an elevator to reach the car park from just outside PF 1.
A small budget lodge and an eatery is there just behind tourist car park. Udupi city centre is about 4 kms from the station and Udupi-Manipal highway is about half a km away.
auto facility seems to be there, although I am not sure if it functions effectively.
The display of coach position is interesting at the notice board. It does not show position of coaches from engine and direction. Instead it shows a coach will stop at the number where it is displayed. For example in our train 22475, engine was at number 24 on the platform, where it stopped. Our coach was 10th from engine. The display notice mentioned A1 would be where 14 number is on the platform. Bit confusing for non regular passengers.
There are just one or two porters at the station who normally show up only before a train is scheduled to arrive. Unless, we request the station staff to call him over his cell phone.

Thanks, I could not forget the best ever breakfast which I had at UD while I was on journey on 56640. The train stopped here for about 20 minutes due to some issue (requiring a foreign passenger to buy ticket who boarded without ticket, the railway police helped her too much. She missed to get down at Karwar from Mangala express as she slept & Mangala was about 12 hours late. She thus got down from Mangala at UD and got into this train).
This gave us chance to relish fresh tasty Neer dosa, crispy samosa, juice etc. If not for this halt due to a foreigner we would not have got chance to have this superb food at UD.

Traveled in 56640 4 days ago and had a similar experience at UD. A small stall on the KAWR end dishes out some of the best Upma, Buns, Goli Bajjis and Lemon rice I have tasted. Needless to say, they were fresh adn hot. The lone TTE of the train suggested the shop and he himself packed all the items for BF.

Wow, looks like railways should give a 5 minute halt at UD to relish tasty food!!! I think we both are talking about same stall :) That day he had Neer dosa with kuruma, samosa etc.

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

Udupi rly stn, It is the dirtiest on konkan Railway, I had to spend 4 hrs due to late running of my train, waste bins are over flowing Dirty stains all over on the floor, there are many stray dogs on the platforms trying to mate. there were no cleaners from 6am to 10am, toilets in waiting room not cleaned, when pointed out to the attendant he just ignores but don't forget to collect Rs 5 per person for using the toilet. the station staff have don't care attitude when complain of cleanliness of the station, it's the same from last 10 months I am using it. Names Board of Ministers, Engineers & the history of this Udupi Rly stn is blocked by huge table map of the station, rly coffee shop below the staircase is also in bad shape, as whole the full area within & outside is...
filthy, wonders how nobody observes or point out to concerned authorities...

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
