Average time would be 2 to 3 hours however weeking day may be on lower side
Hi, I would be landing in Cochin airport on 18th Feb(Monday) at 9.45 am and would be driving straight to Guruvayoor temple for darshan and then go to Athirapally falls and night stay at aithirapally resorts. But as per temple website it is mentioned that "...THE TEMPLE OPENS AT 3.00 AM & TEMPLE WILL BE CLOSED BETWEEN 1.30PM AND 4.30PM AND REOPENS AT 4.30 PM ..". (timings 3 am to 12 noon and 4.30 pm to 9 pm) Would it be possible to drive from cochin airport to Gurvayoor and have darshan before 1 :30 pm. Considering it is Monday and normal darshan time of 1-2 hours. OR I heard there is special darshan (• 'Neyvilakku' service ) now days for Rs 1000 per head or in worst case if I want to get the darshan at 4.30 when temple opens in evening what time they allow to get into Q Please advise if we have any better option Regards RameshC
