Located in the state of Kerala, Guruvayur is home to the fourth largest temple in India: the Guruvayur Sree Krishna Temple. The name ‘Guruvayur’ is derived from three words: Guru (Brihaspathi), Vayu (God of wind) and Oor (Land). It is believed that Guru found a floating Krishna sculpture during Kaliyuga and installed this image with the help of Vayu at this place.

Guruvayur Travel guide is incomplete without a mention of its rich cultural and spiritual legacy. In addition to the grandiose idol of Lord Krishna, the Guruvayur Sree Krishna Temple possesses idols of other Gods such as Sree Ayyappa, Lord Shiva and Edathedathy Kavil Bhagavathy. Another prominent attraction of the Guruvayur temple is the Krishnattam Kali, a folk dance of Kerala which is believed to have originated here.
