Visit a sacred site of Hindu pilgrimage at Guruvayur Temple, a temple complex dedicated to Vishnu, here worshipped in the form of Krishna. The temple's origins remain shrouded in mystery: some believe the icon worshipped here to be over 5,000 years old, while other estimates reference the first time that it appeared in a text, back in the 16th century CE. The temple adheres strictly to its routines and dress code, and non-Hindus do not have access to the main building.

A very famous temple, Huge crowd most of the times. Most likable about that place is equality to people. Best time to go early in the morning and there are a plenty of hotels in and around that temple.
