Guruvayoor - It is one of the most important and holiest pilgrim
centres in Kerala, South India, attracting thousands of pilgrims
from all over India. The major attraction is the temple of Lord
Sree Krishna who is also called 'Guruvayurappan'. To trace the
history of Guruvayoor, we have to go back a few thousand years.
Lord Krishna was born as the son of Vasudeva and Devaki in the
dwapara yuga. He was not an ordinary boy! He performed wonderful
deeds and everyone was convinced that the boy was none other
than Lord Vishnu in human form, an avatar of Vishnu or the perfect
manifestation of the supreme power. Before leaving the earth
to the heavenly abode, Lord Krishna told Udhava, his foremost
disciple that he had installed the image of Lord Vishnu in the
temple built by him at Dwaraka. Later Dwaraka was submerged
in the sea and Brihaspathi (Guru) recovered the idol and with
the assistance of Vayu (Wind God). Together, they traveled all
over India in search of a holy place and finally reached Kerala.
Here, with the help of Parasurama, they located a holy spot.
Guru and Vayu installed the image of Lord Vishnu (Lord Krishna)
in the temple built by Viswakarma, the architect of the Gods.
As Guru and Vayu together founded the temple, the place came
to be called ‘Guruvayupura’ in accordance with Lord Shiva’s
wish. Later the name was shortened to Guruvayoor. With regard
to the number of devotees visiting each day to receive the Lord’s
blessings, Guruvayoor Temple ranks first in Kerala and fourth
in India. Considering the number of devotees, it is a ‘Maha
