GURUPAVANAPURA

 

Just at the time of his final exit before the submerging of Dwaraka into the ocean, he instructed Udhava to entrust the task of installing it to Brihaspati and Vayu in a suitable place for uninterrupted worship.  When informed of the Lord's injunction, Brihaspati and Vayudeva made an elaborate search for a fitting place throughout the length and breadth of akhanda Bharatha Kanda. 

And at long last, when they were convinced with the sublimity of a spot here, in front a lake of crystal clear water, surrounded by thick green foliage, they found the abode of Uma Maheswar at the end of the lake, who pleased with the selection sealed it with consent when informed of Krishna's wish. Thereupon Brihaspati and Vayu installed the idol here for regular worship with due ceremonies. 

It prospered beyond expectation in a short period and became a popular kshetra of eternal attraction. The place thus developed into a nagara, went by the name of Guruvayupura of Guru Pavanapura. And Guruvayur for short. Needless to say it owes its prosperity and sanctity to the selection made by Guru and Vayu.
