There were a number of spiritual and cultural activities in Nanganalur on the occasion of Gokulashtami, the birthday of Lord Krishna. The famous Guruvayoorapan temple resembled a mini Gokulam. Devotees thronged this temple in Ram Nagar from dawn to have a darshan of 'Kochu Krishna'. The icon of the Lord is petit, flashing an impish smile, making his devotees ecstactic. Special poojas which included milk, rose water and sandal abishekam, were performed in the morning followed by recitation of verses from holy scriptures like Bhagavatham, etc.
