Saturday 14th May 2016

Guruvayoor is about 140 Km from Alleppey and we planned for a day trip by bus and started at 6 am fro the house and Mr Jacob dropped us at the bus stand. We boarded  a volvo A/C bus, they call it "Low floor AC Bus" at 6.15am, and the bus passing through Ernakulam (Kochi) reached at 11 am.

We walked to temple,short distance from bus stand. The crowd was huge and long line to enter the inner sanctorium, After removing shirt and wearing "Panche" and depositing mobiles and camera, we went inside for darshan from distance.

Outer sorroundings
Enclosure for the waiting devotees
The presiding deity is Lord Vishnu, worshipped in the form of SreeKrishna.The central icon is a four armed Krishna carrying the "Conch PanchaJanya", the "SudarshanaChakra", the mace "Kaumodaki" amd the "Lotus with Holy basil garland"

After some effort, we could enter the inner place for darshana for a short while felt blessed by the visit. Next was for lunch with a huge crowd, with a long line which we avoided by eating in a hotel.

Return trip, we manage to get a bus at 4pm as just after half an hour stuck in a traffic jam due to election rallies and roadshow. Eventually, when reached Alleppey, it was 11 pm and took an auto and reached Jacob's house.
