I have no words to describe Guruvayoor Shree Krishna Temple. It is really a Bhuloka Vaikunta. I was there to participate for the Chembai Sangeetholsavam. With Krishna's grace all went well and I had a wonderful experience. OM NAMO BHAGAVATE VASUDEVAYA.....

We managed to go for the 3am Darshan which was considered the most auspicious and it was truly amazing. The Temple architecture was wonderful. Will definitely make another trip in the coming years.
