We travelled along the coast of Allepey-Kochi and the roads to guruvayur is a real roller coaster. It was 10PM when we reached kochi so we stopped there for dinner near the famous lulu mall and was bustling at that hour. After a scrumptious meal of Al-Fam chicken with khuboos, we resumed our journey on road. We reached our destination for the night, past midnight. Guruvayur was relatively less hot and humid. We checked in the stay which we had booked through AirBnB, which costed 3k a night for 7ppl which was a pretty sweet deal. It was already 230AM and with just 3hours left for the wedding, we tried to put ourselves to sleep. After few hours, everybody woke up, managed to get ready somehow and left to the temple for the ceremony. It was just a 10min drive from our stay and the sun was still waking up. I was a first timer for the famous Guruvayur temple-wedding and I dint have any expectations, but it dint fail to astonish me. When we entered the chamber of the temple outside the shrine, where all the weddings happen it was super crowded, but for a regular Indian like me, you can get used to it. The bride and a groom is given a time slot of 30mins and in within that time-frame you get called upon anytime to the mandap. All the brides and the grooms and their families line up in a queue near the stage and when it’s their turn, they go up the stage, tie the thaali or mangalsutra, exchange flower garlands, go around the mandap in a circle together, pose for a pic and get down. It’s just a five minute affair and you are hitched for life. That day alone, I witnessed more than six weddings, back to back! It was one of a kind experience for me. After my friend’s ceremony got over, we clicked few pics with them and let them alone for their candid (awkward indeed) photography. We had breakfast on the way back to our stay and unwinded for few hours and started to our next destination Kotagiri.
