Peaceful and serene...
Mar 2020 • Couples
A huge elephant temple about 90-100 kms from Kochi. Very well kept, clean, sanitised and well organised temple of worship. Ample of security and helpful volunteers.
Some key points -
Temple remains closed from 1pm to 4:30pm.

There is a huge procession before the temple opens. So one needs to wait in line.

Non Hindus strictly not allowed.

Men need to wear a lungi (sarong) and bare chested before entering the temple.

If you give a 1000/- donation you can skip the Que.

Over all a very peaceful and serene environment. A must visit, even if a non Hindu, plenty of other things to see.

Temple Dedicated to Lord Krishna.
Nov 2019
Guruvayur Temple is a temple dedicated to the Hindu god Lord Krishna. The presiding deity of the temple is a four armed version of Vishnu, worshipped mainly in Kerala, as Shri Krishna in his infant form.

The temple opens at 3 am in the morning, and there are daily five pujas and three circumambulatory processions of the deity on an elephant, and finally closing at 10 pm at night. There are special timings for senior citizens from 7 am to 8 am and then again from 4.30 pm to 6 pm, without any entry fee. We decided to go for the evening darshan but still had to wait in the queue for about half an hour. We were allowed to go in batches and we joined the general public once we entered the temple. We had a good darshan of the Lord. We had a good minute to view the idol and it indeed seemed that he was blessing us.

There is a strict dress code we had to adhere to. Men can only wear dhotis and nothing to cover the chest. Ladies can wear sarees or salwar kameez, but not jeans or shorts. Cell-phones, cameras and other gadgets have to be kept in the lockers outside for a small fee.

After darshan we went to the Prasad Hall where we were served a holy meal which consisted of a banana, some upma and glass of some sweet nectar.

Gorgeous temple
Dec 2019 • Family
This is one of the most beautiful and well kept temple's in India. It can be quite crowded depending on the day. The day we went there was a 4 hour wait but very well managed. We were in a hurry so we bought the 4500 for 5/1000 for 1 ticket. Got the darshan right away. The main deity is beautiful.
No mobile phones and smart watches allowed.
Women need to wear sarees and men veshti/dhoti.

Darshan at Guruvayur Temple
Feb 2019 • Family
Went for Darshan at the famed Sri Krishana Temple
The devotees qeue was long and serpentine hence deiced to have a glimpse of the Lord from the Nada itself. Had a good darshan.
Pl remebre there is a dress code for male and female devotees, males must be attired in dhotis and no cell phones or smart watches are allowed.
However there is a good cloak room available where your valuables could be stored safely

Power packed Temple
Jun 2019 • Couples
This is a temple with little architecture or fanciful stuff to look at but the spiritual force felt here is unusual. In spite of the thronging crowds, you manage to get a darshan of the main deity. The visit here is a satisfying spiritual experience. The visit to this temple is considered complete only if the pilgrims pray at Mammiyoor temple too.

Mesmerizing !!!!
Jun 2019 • Couples
The one place I keep visiting again and again..the place were you can feel the inner peace once you enter the temple sanctum..this place makes you to connect your inner soul to the almighty himself and have a conversation with him...just the words can't express the feeling..place to visit atleast once in a life time..
