It is said that, Lord Brahma worshipped Lord Sri Krishna’s Idol and gifted it to Lord Sri Vishnu during Krishnaavtaaram. After Lord Sri Krishna left for HIS Heavenly Abode, The City of Dwarka was submerged under sea. Guru – The Preceptor of The Gods and Vayu – The

Wind God were entrusted with the work of finding a suitable place to install the Holy Idol. After a long search, it is said that both Guru and Vayu installed The Idol at The Temple, at the insistence of Guru Parshuram. The place got its name ‘Guruvayur’ because both Guru and Vayu installed the idol. The Deity is known as ‘Guru Vayur Appan’ meaning, ‘Lord of Guruvayur’. It is a very very powerful place of worship of Lord Sri Krishna and ‘Tulaabharam’ takes place here i.e. people offer of their own weight, either fruits, food, gold, silver etc. depending on what they have committed.
