Guruvayur is a noted pilgrim centre. Even its local name, ‘Bhuloka Vaikuntha’, means ‘the place where the spiritual world meets the earth’, referring to its status as a holy town. Devotees throng the small town during the pilgrimage season.
Sree Krishna Temple:
An air of piety pervades the atmosphere around the Sree Krishna Temple in Guruvayur where thousands of devotees wait in long queues for a fleeting glimpse of Guruvayurappan. It is Kerala’s largest shrine and South India’s second largest revenue earner. A 33.5-m tall gold-plated dwajasthambha, or flagstaff, stands in front of the temple.
Note: Entry is restricted to Hindus.
This is said to be the oldest among the churches established by St Thomas the Apostle, who is believed to have arrived in Kerala in 52 AD. Numerous life-sized granite statues depicting the life of the saint adorn the entrance of this building.
