Guruvayoor Temple

29 kms North-West of Thrissur, Kerala, Guruvayoor is the position where the famous Sri Krishna Temple is located. It is one of the most holy and significant pilgrim centers of Kerala. This very old historic temple is hidden in mystery.

It is supposed, the temple was produced by 'Guru', the 'preceptor of the gods' and 'Vayu', the 'god of winds'. This is perhaps the only temple in the state that hosts the largest number of marriages and rice feeding ceremonies (the ritual first meal for infants).

The eastern 'nada' is the main entrance to the holy place. In the
'Chuttambalam' (outer enclosure) is a 33.5-m tall gold-plated 'Dwajastambham' (flagpost). There is also a 7 m high 'Deepastambham' (pillar of lamps), whose thirteen circular receptacles provide a truly brilliant spectacle, when lit.

The square 'Sreekovil' is the holy sanctum sanctorum of the temple, housing the main deity. The walls of the sanctum sanctorum are inlaid with beautiful mural paintings and carvings. The interior of the temple also displays the images of Ganapathy, Sri Ayyappa and Edathedathy Kavil Bhagavathy. Only Hindus are allowed inside the temple.
