It is a beautiful Guruvayoorappan (Shri Vishnu) Temple about 45 minutes from Thrissur City. One of the many large temples in Kerala, what makes it beautiful is not just the temple but the whole atmosphere. There are excellent middle to upper class hotels around the temple, the number of small stall shops selling the peacock feathers, toy drums, hordes of CDs, etc etc Never to miss the Vaghacharth at 4 am and the Shaiveli at 8.30 pm, the beginning and closing of the day. Never also miss the Naipayasam at 5 am and the Palpayasam at 11 am. The whole experience of waking up early am, bathing, wearing the mundu & angavasthram and going to the temple is an experience that one should not miss in this lifetime! We long to get there every year without giving it a miss. But, only Hindus are allowed, because of the sanctity and purity of the temple - which Hindus are aware of and most often follow. There are experiences of people who suffer many different physical and mental problems at some stage in life for not following temple rules. Like many people, I never believed, but when you hear from close quarters it's no more to be laughed at. Other than such things, it's a real experience.
