So folks, it’s that time of the year when your devotion to Lord Vishnu is beckoning you to visit the sacred land of Guruvayur. We list for you the various means of travel available for you. Continue reading if you haven’t yet made your pick.

  • By Air

    Cochin International Airport located at Kochi happens to be the nearest airport, which is about 90 km away from Guruvayur. The airport is well-connected to most major cities in the country and even abroad. You can board direct flights to Kochi from metro cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Bangalore. 
    In the recent years, helicopter transportation has been possible from Guruvayur to Kochi and Kozhikode through a large helipad. Several taxis are also available from the airport to take you to Guruvayur at an approximate cost of around INR 800, though you can try your luck at negotiation too. There are also private and
    Kerala State Road Transport Corporation buses running to and fro from the two cities.
  • By Train

    Guruvayur Railway Station lies in the Thrissur-Guruvayur section, Thrissur being about 27 km away, and Guruvayur happens to be the last station in the line. Every day, two passenger trains operate from Guruvayur to Ernaculam Junction in the city of Kochi while two other move to Thrissur.
    However, since Guruvayur is a small town, most people prefer Thrissur railway station as it well-connected to most major cities in India. From here, you can board a taxi to Guruvayur which should cost you from INR 300 to INR 400.
  • By Road

    From Thrissur Railway Station, you can easily find Kerala State Road Transport Corporation buses at the nearby KSRTC Bus Stand. These state-run buses connect Guruvayur to several important cities in the state like Kochi, Kozhikode, Palaghat, Trivandrum, Coimbatore, Chennai and Bangalore. If you looking for most comfortable private buses, then you can go to Shakthan Thampuran Bus Stand. From these, bus stands, you can find inter-state, inter-district and city bus services.

Now, that the packing is more or less done, all you are left to do is to make your pick for your means of travel. And then, you can safely indulge yourself completely in the fun and frolic of your vacation.
