Be patient in the que. Remove and secure your footwears prior to hang on the que.Keep some water with you because it may take long time. Try to come for darshan early morning around 6am to 7am for a smooth pleasant darshan.

“Divine worship”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

I ha visited gurvayur on 10th June. I waited in Queue for 2 hours. Till the entry in to the temple gate every thing is well managed. Once inside the temple there is complete chaos which could have been managed better. When I reached the sanctum to have a glimpse of the lord, the priest inside kept moving and was unable to see the lord.
My personal opinion is the queue management has to be robust. People outside the queue who were getting permission to enter with the help of the security officers.
The bridge inside the temple leading to the sanctum could pose a challenge.
The visitors inside can be treated better rather than pushing them out. Ultimately visitors travel so far to obtain satisfaction which I was deprived.

“amazing!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

Amazing is the dedication and belief with which people come here! Mostly visited by South Indians for every auspicious occasions, this temple is the 4th mostly visited temple in India mainly for it's shrine. It is said that Lord Krishna himself used to worship this shrine of Lord Vishnu. The temple does not have any special or antique architecture. The main temple is very small, but the premise that the temple area covers is quite big. There are two cute elephants ready to entertain you at the back. A lot of time management is required to cut the long temple queue. There is a queue that stars inside the temple, this is only for women and small children, it moves faster than the regular queue that is famous for its length. Once inside the outer court of the temple, you can see counters for various offerings and food. Have all the different kinds of payasam they offer. The most important thing you should remember that this temple does not allow jeans or any pants, Female can wear saree or salwar, no skirt, shorts or jeans. Westi or dhoti (available in outside shops for ~200 INR) without shirt/kurta is must for males.
