Integral part of visit

Mammiyoor Mahadevan temple is close to Guruvayur temple. An auto charge distance of Rs/-20. The temple is worshipped for both Sivan & Krishnan. Gents have to wear dhoti for entering into the temple. For that arrangements are there for getting the item. Legend says Sivan's place was once in the pond at Guruvayur and when Krishnan came Sivan's place was shifted to Mammiyoor. Hence visiting Mammiyoor temple is an integral part of Guruvayur visit.

Strict dress code

A place of worship must not impose dress codes since it is not written in any of our religious books.

Very nice to visit

As per mythology, the place where the present Guruvayur main temple is situated where earlier Lord Mahadevan temple was present. At the prayers of Brihaspati and Vayu Dev Lord Shiva gave the place to install the divine idol of Maha Vishnu and moved to Mammiyar. This temple is very sacred and very nice to visit.
