Legends claim that when the city was being demolished and built in Kerala, Lord Krishna asked 2 sages to take the idol from his temple in Dwarka. Vayu Deva and Brhaspathi brought the idol of Lord Krishna, and it was installed in Guruvayur. The term guruvayur is a combination of both their names (‘guru’ brahaspathi and ‘vayu’ deva. References to a place named Kuruvayur are made in the 14th century Tamil literature ‘Kokasandesam’.
Many references are seen concerning Kuruvayur as early as the 16th century. Kuruvai means sea in ancient Dravidic, hence the village may be called Kuruvayur on the coast. According to historian Professor K. V. Krishna Iyer, during the time of Chandra Gupta Maurya (321-297 BC), the Brahmins started to come and settle at Kodungallur.
“The Guruvayur Temple is a famous temple of Sri Krishna and is one of the Hindus’ most important places of worship and is also referred to as “Bhooloka Vaikuntam,” which translates to Vishnu’s holy abode on Earth. The holy idol installed here represents Bhagvan Vishnu ‘s enchanting form adorned with four lustrous arms bearing the Panchajanya conch, the Sudarshana Chakra discus, the Kaumodaki mace and the lotus.
The idol is decorated with the holy Tulasi garland, depicting the majestic form of Maha Vishnu as revealed at the time of Krishna Avatar to Vasudeva Anakadundubhi and Devaki. In the sanctum-sanctorum, the presiding deity is Mahavishnu. He faces east and is 4 ft tall with his idol.
