Guruvayur Temple, Kerala

The presiding deity of the temple is Mahavishnu. The legend has it that once while Sri Adisankaracharya on his aerial journey to Sringeri was unable to proceed further while travelling over the Guruvayur temple and fell. Sri Adisankaracharya then saw the Lord Krishna in all his mighty. Realizing his fault, Sri Adisankaracharya prostrated before Lord Krishna and chanted Govinda Ashtakam. Guravayur is an important pilgrimage center for Hindus.
