Prime Minister Narendra Modi participated in religious rituals at the renowned Lord Krishna temple in Guruvayur, Kerala, on Wednesday morning. Dressed in traditional attire comprising 'mundu' and 'veshti' (white shawl), the Prime Minister's visit was met with tight security measures around the temple.
Modi's arrival in Guruvayur, scheduled for 7.35 am, involved a helicopter landing at the Sree Krishna College ground, where a sizable gathering of BJP supporters eagerly awaited him. The crowd, comprising people of all ages, welcomed the Prime Minister with enthusiasm, waving BJP flags and sporting hats and caps in party colors.
Following his arrival, Modi proceeded to the Sreevalsam guest house, where he changed into the traditional Kerala attire before heading to the temple for prayer offerings. After completing the religious observances, the Prime Minister is set to attend the wedding ceremony of actor-turned-politician Suresh Gopi's daughter.
In addition to his temple visit in Guruvayur, Modi is scheduled to offer prayers at the Triprayar Sree Rama Swami Temple in Thrissur district. Subsequently, he will return to Kochi, where he will participate in Central government and party-related events.
