Guruvayur

Guruvayur

This most famous temple town of Kerala is divinely located near the seashore and also known as ‘bhuloka vaikuntha’ – the abode of the Lord on the Earth. The scriptures vividly describe the glories of this sacred place. Lord Siva (Rudra) performed tapas and worshipped Maha Vishnu for years under the waters of the sacred tank located on the northern side of the present day temple and hence this body of water got the name of Rudra-Theertham. In the ancient days, Rudra-Theertham extended up to Mammiyur and Thamarayur (about 3 km away) and was known for its ever blooming lotus flowers. The fourth canto of Srimad Bhagavatam narrates that once the Prachethas (the ten sons of King Prachinabarhi and Suvarna) came to this place to do.. Sensing the motive of the Prachethas, Lord Siva emerged out of the Rudratheertham and revealed to them the Rudrageetham, a hymn in praise of Mahavishnu. The Princes won the favour of Mahavishnu after rigorous tapas for 10,000 years under the waters of Rudra-Theertham by chanting the Rudrageetham. The Deity of the Guruvayur temple is unique, since it is carved out of a material called Pathalanjana Sila, and is considered extremely sacred. This Deity was once worshipped by Lord Shiva in Kailasa and Shiva handed it over to Brahma.
