about guruvayur temple

Guruvayur Temple in Guruvayur dedicated to Lord Krishna (an incarnation of Vishnu) is one of the most sacred places for Vaishnavites, even though it is not included in the 108 Divya Desams (holy places dedicated to Lord Vishnu). The temple is commonly known as Bhuloka Vaikuntham (home of Lord Vishnu on Earth). Guruvayur Temple is one of the important Krishna temples in Kerala. The idol of Lord Vishnu is is made of the sacred Patalanjana stone. He is four-armed carrying the Sudarshan Chakra, a lotus, a conch and a mace in each of his hands. Though the main idol worshipped here is Lord Vishnu, the temple is called Shri Krishna Temple because lord Krishna in his boyhood would be seen frequently around the temple premises. Legends state that the deity worshipped here is more than 5000 years old.

The rituals laid down by Adi Shankaracharya are very strictly followed here under the supervision of the head priest. The temple forms the lifeline of the town. There is a strict dress code. Men are to wear the traditional mundus without covering their chest. Women should wear saris and girls should only wear skirts that fully cover their legs.
