Mammiyoor temple or Mammiyur Mahadeva Kshetram is a Shiva temple near Guruvayoor temple, Kerala, south India. Dedicated to Lord Shiva, the splendour and grandeur of the Mummiyur is enhanced by the paintings on the walls and the exquisite sculptures. Every devotee who goes to Guruvayoor is supposed to go to Mammiyoor also, as the ritual goes. Only Hindus are allowed inside the temple premises. Regarding the history of this temple,. Sri Krishna established a big temple at Dwaraka and installed this idol. At the time of swargaarohana Lord Krishna instructed his devotee Udhava to install the idol at a sacred place with the help of Brihaspathi, the guru of the Devas and Vayu, the wind God. They (Guru and Vayu) took the idol and came down to a place down south and installed it. This is why the place got its name Guruvayoor, where oor means place. It is also said that Lord Shiva and his Wife Parvathy were present at the auspicious moment and because there was a lack of space in the temple premises, Shiva moved a little further away, and gives his blessings from Mammiyoor Temple, which is a ten minute walk from the Guruvayoor Temple.
