A beautiful temple dedicated to Sudama , a humble friend of Lord Krishna. The legend goes like this: Sudama , a friend of the Lord Krishna is a humble poor person.

Perhaps the only temple dedicated to the great friend of Krishna, Sudama. The place has a huge garden where one can relax. the statue of Krishna and Sudama embracing each other is beautiful. The temple is quaint and old. Nothing particular about the temple except for the fact that you do not get any Sudama temple anywhere else. If you... More

This is a temple and park. There is a maze which shall entertain you. Few advantages with this location are: 1. Centre of town, you have recreation area 2. Associated with some history which attracts you . 3. Near to a lot of shopping 4. Maintenance is good. So using Loo, is better for females

The Sudama mandir is a decent clean temple dedicated to the friendship of Lord Krishna and Sudama. A beautiful story highlighted by Sudama, Susila and Lord Krishna , represented by a small packet of dry poha that we can get for 10 rupees. Worth a visit when passing by Porbandar, and a must visit if we are on a pilgrimage... More

Sudama Mandir at Porbander is one of the few temples (the only one I have visited) dedicated to Sudama (a mortal) who was Lord Krishna's friend. The temple has a beautiful mural depicting Lord Krishna washing Sudama's feet when his friend comes visiting him. The temple premises are very neat and clean. Overall a very nice temple to visit.

Thank Parwathi H
