Why Guruvayur is not a divya desam?
Divya desams are those temples where Azhvars have done Mangala Sasanam (In simple words, have sung about the temple) . Kerala.
There are 13 Divya desams in Kerala. Out of the 12 Azhvars only two azhvars have visted these temples,One of them is Nammazhvar whose mother came from Kerala and the other is Thirumangai Azhvar who has sung in eighty of the 108 Divya desams.
In one of the notes published in Oppiliappan web site it is mentioned that Azhvars did not sing about any temple where God is there without the Goddess .Guruvayur being a temple where God is there without the Goddess , they did not visit that temple. I checked up and found that in all the 13 Divya desams of Kerala , goddess is also consecrated in those temples.
I thought this information would be interesting to my friends.
