Arrival at Cochin/ Thrissur. Guruvayur, the abode of Lord Sree Guruvayurappan, is located 29 kms north west to the cultural capital of the kerala.According to the legends, the idol worshipped here is more than 5000 years old. But there are no historical records to establish it. In the 14th century Tamil literature 'Kokasandesam', references about a place called Kuruvayur is made. As early as 16th century (50 years after the Narayaneeyam was composed) many references are seen about Kuruvayur. In ancient Dravidic, Kuruvai means sea, hence the village on the coast may be called Kuruvayur. Overnight stay at hotel in Guruvayur.
Day 02 - Kalady - Vadakkumnathan Temple
Today you can go to Vadakkumnathan Temple. It is one of the largest temples in Kerala and has excellent carved woodwork. It has three main shrines. One is dedicated to Vadakkunnathan (Lord Siva) and another to Sankara Narayana (Vishnu). South of these two shrines is a shrine dedicated to Lord Rama. Vadakkunnathan is a Maha-linga that is covered with offerings of hundreds-of-years-old ghee . The linga cannot be seen because the traditional abhisheka (bathing) with cow ghee over centuries has formed a 3m mound around the linga. This covering even makes it difficult for the priest to walk around the inner sanctum. The shrine dedicated to Sankara Narayana has beautiful paintings of the Mahabharata. There is also a Deity of Krishna in the temple and a Ganesh deity betweenthe two northern altars. This temple is in the park, right in the center of the city.On the walls there are excellent murals of the Mahabharata and of Lord Vishnu reclining on Ananta.
