The Image of Vishnu, Guru & Vayu   Guruvayur Temple

Guruvayur Temple is Kerala's most important shrine. Its Deity, Guruvayurappan, has inspired numerous poems from Kerala poets. The temple attracts a constant flow of pilgrims. They throng the temple from very early morning (3 am) to late at night (10pm) to have a darshan of Guruvayurrappan. Guruvayur Temple organizes twenty four festivals annually. The Prominent among the festivals are Ekadasi and Ulsavam. The elephants of Punnathur kotta give the Ulsavam a carnival look and the crowd that gathers make it a memorable experience. The Institute of Mural Painting runs under the Dewaswam Board,trains students in traditional arts.


Guruvayur, where the famous Sree Krishna Temple is situated, is one of the most sacred and important pilgrim centers of Kerala. This is probably the only temple in the state that hosts the maximum number of marriages and rice feeding ceremonies (the ritual first meal for infants). The historic temple is shrouded in mystery. According to local belief, the temple was created by 'Guru', the 'preceptor of the gods' and 'Vayu', the 'god of wind'. It was also the hub of the 'Guruvayur Sathyagraha' , a historic movement demanding temple entry rights for the 'so called' lower castes.
