  1. Kerala, the lovely state, situated in the South of India, boasts of many tourist places. It has lots to offer to visitors from all over the world. Its scenic beauty and rich culture is known throughout the world. Kerala tours packages cover many interesting facets of Kerala. Kerala is known for its temples and its architecture that are old and rare. The beautiful and historical temples showcase the harmonious blend of stonework, woodwork, stuccowork and painting. They are the icon of the vibrant traditions of Kerala. The woodwork of Kerala temples is unique and of great importance. One among the many temples in Kerala is the Laxmi Venkatesh temple that enshrines the beautiful images of Laxmi and Venkatesh or Vishnu. The temple was built in December 1989 and is situated at Hosdurg in Kanhangad. Due to its magnificent and mystical value, the temple is thronged by tourists and devotees all through the year. Another very famous temple is the Guruvayoor temple whose main deity is Lord Sree Krishna in his youthful form. Its eastern nada is the main entrance. There is a 7 meters high Deepasthambham which has 13 circular receptacles and it looks amazing when lit completely. The other deities in the temple are Ganapathy, Sree Ayyappa and Edathedathu Kavil Bhagavathy. The temple is known to heal various difficult physical ailments. Exquisite mural paintings and carvings are inlaid on the walls of the sanctum sanctorum. Lot of people come to catch a glimpse of the Nirmalya Darshanam celebrated in the pre-dawn hours i.e. about 3 am.

    Since the OP is the first and only post by a new member, I think it's fair to ask what the relation is between Goodman and the Kerala tours packages link in the post.

    Darn, I came here looking for photos and a discussion of Kerala temples. I'd let the post stand with the disclaimer that there are many other tour operators.
