Guruvayur Temple   Elephant Sanctuary   Guruvayur Maraprabhu

Guruvayur Sri Krishna Temple is a Hindu temple dedicated to the god Krishna (an avatar of the god Vishnu), located in the town of Guruvayur in Kerala, India.

 It is one of the most important places of worship for Hindus of Kerala and is often referred to as "Bhuloka Vaikunta" which translates to the "Holy Abode of Vishnu on Earth". However, even though the shrine is considered to be one of the holiest spots for Vaishnavites (Vishnu followers), the temple is not a part of the famous 108 Divya Desams temple list.

 

Punnathurkotta is a fort and former palace located in Kottapadi, about 2 km from the Guruvayoor Sree Krishna Temple, in Thrissur District of Kerala State in South India. This Elephant Camp is one of its kinds in the world and is considered to be one of the largest elephant sanctuaries housing around 60 elephants. The fascinating feature is that all the elephants are offerings that are made by the devotees, at the temple. The camp also acts as a training school for the elephants. Most of the elephants are trained to participate in major processions and daily temple rituals. This camp is visited by several tourists every year.

 

Maraprabhu is the biggest terracotta idol. It stands in the Guruvayoor Sreevalsom Devaswam compound, 45 meters away from the main idol Lord Guruvayoorappan.

This Silpa Incarnation of the Lord Maraprabhu is 52 ft tall. Millions of devotees throng to this rare idol every year for mental peace and to get relief. Maraprabhu is the myth and the total embodiment of the Vishnu Sahasranama.
