Create an itinerary including Guruvayur Temple
Visit a sacred site of Hindu pilgrimage at Guruvayur Temple, a temple complex dedicated to Vishnu, here worshipped in the form of Krishna. The temple's origins remain shrouded in mystery: some believe the icon worshipped here to be over 5,000 years old, while other estimates reference the first time that it appeared in a text, back in the 16th century CE. The temple adheres strictly to its routines and dress code, and non-Hindus do not have access to the main building.

  • Thousands of devotees of Lord Krishna flowing to this temple everyday. This Temple is one of the great temples of Lord Krishna in Kerala. You have to come here to feel the spiritual atmosphere around there. No other words. Hare Krishna.
  • Lovely Temple. Try to visit this temple at least once in a year. Always book the slot in online and then go to temple (you need to carry the print out) so that you will avoid the crowd. Try to visit the temple in morning at least before 9 am. It will take around 2 hours totally
