Thirunakkara Sri Krishna Swamy Temple

South Guruvayoor Temple

Thirunakkara Sri Krishna Swamy Temple, also called the South Guruvayoor Temple, is situated near the Thirunakkara Mahadeva Temple in Kottayam. Lord Krishna is the chief deity worshipped here. Lord Ganesh and Goddess Bhagavati are sub-deities.

Abhishek, homam, archana and naivedyam are the main offerings. An annual seven days festival, 'Araattu', held here is a major draw. An impressive part of the festival is a palanquin with floral decorations. The pilgrims, who trek to Sabarimala, take a dip in the holy pond of this temple.

Kottayam Railway Station and Kottayam Bus Station are the nearest access points.
