Visit to Thrissur/Guruvayoor/Elephants Sanctuary

My 50th post abt Travel……  Happy about it!!

We started around 5.15 am from peelamedu coimbatore. As usual the way was filled with awesome greenery on both sides. It was a pleasure watching the nature.

Reached vadakunnathan temple by 8.40 am. Had a great darshan. First time, we saw a temple in such a vast place.. Very happy to see such a place!! It’s a shiva temple. Lord shiva is worshipped in the form of lord nagaraja/serpent. It was great to watch the serpent in a great height.

Next, we visited guruvayoor krishna temple. Due to uccha kala pooja, we were held up in the queue for 45 mins. Had a nice darshan inspite of the crowd. Had a great time.

Then nearby 3 kms, we visited elephant’s sanctuary. We spent just half an hour over there.. But, it was worth it!! Had great fun too… it was worthwhile watching the elephants eating food.. There were too many aged elephants and their legs were tied in iron chain…It is a great task maintaining so many elephants!! We need to watch it from a distance and that too we should not stare at them for a long time. I love elephants, so went for it. Since i could not see those creatures chained, could not see it for a long time…..
