Trip to Guruvayoor

You can write to me on for any clarifications /doubts..i shall try my best to be of use to u so that u have a good dharshan

On 25th sep 2006 frm coimbatore took suppa travels(various private buses are available from near gandhipuram bus stand coimbatore —got down at manuthy –on trichur byepass road..haggled for rs 40 with auto guys to drop me at trichur bus stand from where I can get guruvayoor bus..they won ..had to pay rs.50..quite some distance though..

Reached Guruvayoor by 11.

.long queue..nearly tght I will not make it as the temple closes by 1pm and will only then reopen by 5 pm..prayed to guruvayoorappan to somehow give be a dharshan b4 it closed for afternoon..probably only about 4 people came after closed..had a good dharshan..then prayed to ganapathi, baghavathi and siva (Mamuuthy temple very near by) whose temple u r supposed to visit after this dharshan to get full benefit of the trip to guruvayoor..that also closes by there is a directional board provided within guruvayoor temple praharam(pathway)from where u can pray to siva from inside the temple itself which I did..then was off to my fav payasam bought 2 jars rs 5 each and 2 rs 10 payasams..excellent for subhamy cousin..had the sandal and banana Prasad and a leaflet(refer above for details of various offerings you can make to god as given in the leaflet given in my photo above) for sending rs 1000 each in my name and in the name of deepa to do archana to all gods for a day...there are silver and gold lockets of the lord available at 5000 and 10000 rs..if I get enough money may be I shld get deepa(my sister) one..

Collected the tariff card of the hotel whose link is given below..i felt it is a very spacious decent hotel very near temple with ample car parking space too(if u r coming by car)

for those who want a quick bath or want to use a toilet there is a good set of bathroom and toilet(neat) maintained fairly well slightly diagonally opposite elite hotel very near temple again with lot of car parking if u don’t want to stay and still want to freshen up or use urinal or toilet you would find it neat…ramakrishna lunch home near temple looked as if it had been there for a long time and the food is definitely okay..its a vegetarian hotel..
