Although known as a Temple town, Udupi's cultural influence goes far beyond that. Many forms of folk dance, dance dramas, religious festivals and art have evolved out of here and is often on display in the city during festivals. \n\nSome of the unique forms of dance that evolved out of this region are the Karangolu, Bhuta Kola, Aati kalenja and a special form of snake worship called Nagaradhane. One of the most celebrated festivals is the Paryaya that occurs every two years and is connected to the famous Krishna Matha. Udipi is also famous for its cuisine, which differs from South Indian cuisine as it follows the Satvik discipline of cooking, thus excluding onion garlic, meat, fish, eggs and shellfish and many communities follow this.
