Auspicious beginning of Sri Guruvayurappan  ( Sri Krishna) Temple  construction
Ancient ceremonies and joyful celebrations will dominate the temple premises on Saturday, February  2, 2013 when Thanthri Brahamasri Divakaran Nambuthiri  gives permission to the artisans to place the first granite component at the center of the basement at the auspicious muhurtham between 9:30 AM and 10:30 AM.  Construction of the sanctum sanctorum (Sreekovil) is the first step that will be seen in the initial stages of the building. This temple will be a replica of the original ancient Guruvayur Temple in Kerala. Intricate granite components were carved in the quarries in Kerala under the supervision of the architect Sri Kanipayyur Krishnan Nambuthiripad.  The main temple, when completed,  will have several architectural features distinct from other Hindu Temples in the US. Ritualistic traditions practiced in Guruvayurappan Temple  are known to be set by Adi Sankarachaya. Several ceremonies (poojas and homams (havan) will be performed  in the current  temporary building at 11620 Ormandy Street, Houston, TX 77035 during February 1, 2, and 3.
