When you pay your respects to the Lord at Guruvayur Temple, it is customary to worship the Mahadeva at this temple as only by doing so will you reap the full benefit of the worship. When dwaraka was swallowed by a Tsunami, an idol of Lord Krishna created by the Lord Himself was floating on the water. Gods Vayu and Jupiter found the idol and installed him at present day Guruvayur which was the place of Rudra Theertha where Lord Shiva was also installed. Offering your worship at this temple is considered a special one.
