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.

Abode of Lord Guruvayurappan. Very famous temple in India. A must visit temple.it is a very old temple.Temple darshan starts at 3 am. Lots of hotels near by for food and accomodation more »
A very famous temple, Huge crowd most of the times. Most likable about that place is equality to people. Best time to go early in the morning and there are a plenty of hotels in and around that temple.
One of the best place for Hindu worship..."Be there to believe it"....but one main problem that the managing board should keep in mind is the sanctity of the place...washrooms are pathetic... though you have many hotels around it ...the basic needs has to be seen with more interest for the comfortableness of the devotees.
