Guruvayur Sri Krishna Temple is one of the sacred pilgrim spots in South India, known as 'Bhooloka Vaikuntam' and 'Dwarka of the South'. As per legends, the presiding idol, Lord Krishna (Vishnu) of Guruvayur Sri Krishna Temple is about 5000 years old. This idol originally belonged to the Lord Krishna Temple of the holy city of Dwaraka, which submerged in to the sea. Guru Bruhaspathi and Lord Vayu were left with the task of finding a new abode for this idol, until they discovered a site on the banks of River 'Rudratheertha'. Since the idol was consecrated here by Guru Bruhaspathi and Lord Vayu, the temple as well as the region was named as 'Guruvayur' and the deity came to be known as 'Guruvayurappan'.  

The temple, which dates back to the 17th century, is built in traditional architectural style of Kerala. The walls of the temple are decorated with painting, sculptures and murals. Guruvayur temple, located at a distance of 29 km from Thrissur city, is also famous for being the only religious site in Kerala where wedding ceremonies and ‘Annaprasanam’ (rice feeding ceremony for 6 month olds) are held.
