Modi Ji visited my state #Kerala on Jun 7th. 😊His visit to #Guruvayoor temple hs brought another one of d temples frm Kerala to d limelight. Did u knw that d temple is atleast 5000 yrs old n that d statue of deity ws brought in frm #Dwarka, jst b4 it submerged under d sea? 😃1/n
2/n Pic- Modi ji making d most famous offering at d temple-THULABHARAM. The temple hs seen myriads of rich men offering gold, equivalent to their weight,bt Modi ji chose to offer LOTUS flowers.Very thoughtful! Few days bck Shashi Tharoor ws injured by d same scale.
3/n #Guruvayoor temple is the 5th largest temple in India (going by the no. of devotees visiting the temple every year). At the temple, Modi ji used the digital payments method to donate Rs 39,421. Gr8 way of promoting digital India!
4/n Idol of d deity ws gifted by Brahma to Krishna,who later instructed 2 devas--Brihaspati(also called the Guru) n Vayu dev,to install d idol in Kerala. Thats why d temple is called Guru-Vayur ( Guruvayoor). So u see, Northern n southern divide dint exist in ancient India. 😊
5/n This is Modi Ji's 2nd visit to Guruvayoor, a Maha-Vishnu temple, also called DAKSHINA DWARKA. His 1st visit happened after he ws elected CM of Gujarat. In d pic, u'll observe that no one's wearing a shirt, this so bcoz only traditional attire is allowed here.
6/n Guruvayoor temple links 3 oldest places across Indian subcontinent. 1⃣Banaras- Modi's constituency, also d OLDEST inhabited city in d world,which undr unfortunate circumstances hd to b attacked by Lord #Krishna. Its aftr this attack that Krishna created Dwarka.
2⃣Dwarka- Home to the idol of Guruvayoorappan, which also happens to be in Modi ji's home state, Gujarat. 3⃣City of Guruvayoor itself which hs a 5000 yr old history. In pics--Interiors of Guruvayoor temple.n/n
