ABOUT Guruvayoor TEMPLE

Lord Vishnu, the preserver of this universe for the benefit of mankind decided to adorn the temple of Guruvayur like a lotus in a pond. He blesses the devotees in the form of Lord Krishna, who had a major role in Mahabharatham. The Lord is seen as a ‘Chathur Bhuja’ or with four hands, each carrying his trademark accessories of the Sudharsan chakra,the panchjanaya conch, the kaumodaki mace and a lotus along with a garland of basil around his neck making it a visual spectacle for the pious. The Lord is worshipped in a series of rituals starting with the Nirmalyam Darshan, followed by vakacharthu (vaka – a special mixture to the extract the sesame oil from the previous ritual, considered very potent) and the sankhabhishekam done with the water taken from the temple pond and other rituals and each ritual assumes significance and a darshan if any of these is said to fill the person with joy and blesses them instantly. The temple has a famous legend of how janamajeya, the great grandson of the pandavas was cured of the severe disease leprosy which he was cursed with due to one of his acts and how he built this temple as a token of his sincere devotion and gratitude for his cure. The main lord is known for his curative powers and devotees come to the temple seeking improvement in their health. The temple is also known for its strict rituals and rules which are followed under the supervision of the tantric in charge. The temple tank is known as ‘Rudrateertham’ owing to its roots tracing back to how Lord Shiva worshipped Lord Vishnu in the southern bank of this pond giving it that name – rudra being one of Lord Eswar’s intense forms. The reason the place and subsequently the temple was named as ‘GuruVayoor’ dates back to how Guru and Vayu worked together to install the Idol of Vishnu here and fills the reader with positivity. The temple is known for another interesting reason – the elephants. The temple maintains an elephant yard which attracts lots of people and children and was seen as a major financial boost to the temple’s fortune. The temple till date stands as one of the most important Krishna temples and his followers continue to visit the temple with devotion and respect for the Lord Vishnu. The temple is easily accessible from across the country.
