Guruvayoor Sree Krishna Temple
The temple of Lord Krishna is one of the most sacred and important pilgrim centres in Kerala. The deity in the temple is called ‘Gurvayurappan’. The idol of Guruvayoor temple is unique, since it is carved out of “Pathalanjana Sila”, and is considered extremely sacred. The installation and consecration of the idol is believed to have been done by the Celestial Guru, the preceptor of Devas along with Vayu, the God of Wind, hence the name Guruvayoor. It is at this temple that Melpathoor Naryana Bhattithiripad (in the 16th century) composed his renowned Sanskrit devotional poem ‘Narayaneeyam’ as an offering while he was seriously ill.
