There is nothing to review. It is divine experience. Yes, we need to wait a long in the queue. It is nothing compared to the divine experience that we get in front of GOD. Temple authorities manage the queue very well

the crowd at Shri Guruvayoor is very well managed and you are assured of darshan for atleast a few seconds. its a beautful temple and if you want to see the idol without the "mask" , attend the 3 am darshan,its beautiful.

I found this is the best Sri Krishnan Temple in India.. The maintenance is very very good and all the information that was provided by local people was very much satisfactory.. The accommodation provided by Temple board was good and low in cost.. We stayed around a day here and had the darshan of Guruvayourappan..
