Well connected by rail (Guruvayur Station), road and air (near airport Kochi), this temple attracts devotees throughout the year. Guruvayur has plenty of lodges and hotels to meet the budget of everyone. Male devotees need to wear dhoti, no shirt and women to wear traditional dress - saree or churidar pyjama.
