Experience the splendour of Guruvayoor

Guruvayur is a relatively small yet well connected town, less than 30 km away from Thrissur, the cultural capital of Kerala. It is most popular for the magnificent, centuries-old temple, the Guruvayoor Temple. The temple is not only majestic in sight, but also has a divine power that attracts people in huge numbers daily. The Guruvayoor temple is crowded throughout the year, every single day. More crowded on special occasions and festivals, it is considered a big blessing to have the opportunity to get a glimpse of the deity after standing in queues for hours at an end. <>Rooms Near Guruvayoor Temple

The deity, Lord Guruvayoorappan, is Lord Vishnu Himself, in the form of Sri Krishna incarnate.The idol is believed to have existed from the era of the various incarnations Lord Vishnu took to destroy evil and protect the good. Hindus believe that the idol is the symbol of the supreme divine protection Lord Vishnu offers his devotees.

The temple opens at 3 AM, with a ceremony called Nirmalya Pooja. The idol of Lord Krishna, still adorned in the garlands of the previous day yet still looking full of splendour, is a sight not to be missed. It is believed that Gods come down from heaven to visit the deity in the night.
The deity is then bathed and adorned with garlands, bright clothes and ornaments. He now appears as the playful child Krishna. Rice and sweet offerings follow, and a procession called Sheeveli is performed where the deity is placed on top of an elephant, and goes around the temple thrice, followed by a trail of devotees. By 9 AM, the temple is open for devotees to have a glimpse of Lord Guruvayoorappan. The sheeveli repeats in the evening and night, with several poojas and offerings done at designated times in between. In the evening, a special ceremony called deeparadhana is performed. The entire temple comes to life with thousands of lit lamps illuminating the temple in all grandeur. The smell of incense, the blow of conches and drum beats fill the air, taking the devotee into the deep realms of an absolutely divine experience. A third sheeveli is performed in the night before the temple closes at 9:15 PM.

Krishnanattom: This is a beautiful dance form with rhythmic movements, performed by highly skilled artists to the tune of songs sung about the life of Lord Krishna, from birth till ascension to heaven. This art form is performed on demand of devotees everyday at the Guruvayoor temple.
