Hi Parthasarathy,

You have a direct train 16127 Chennai-Guruvayur Express. The train leaves at 07:40 hrs from Chennai Egmore Station and reaches Guruvayur by 05:50 next day morning.

You will need to book the tickets 60 days (excluding the day of travel) in advance.

Have a divine trip.

What's suggested by CarLinkMumbai is the best option. Railway station is pretty close to the temple. Auto rickshaws are available from station.

Chennai Guruvayur express train suggested above is quite a lengthy route and takes almost 24 hrs for the trip. Your shortest trip can be done with a direct train from chennai to thrissur station (such as chennai Trivandrum mail or the allepey express) and then catch a bus or train from thrissur to Guruvayur which is just a 30 minutes journey. Avoid the chennai Guruvayur express.

Yes ginfernow is correct that if you take Trivandrum Mail or Chennai-Alleppey express you can get down at Trichur, which takes shorter time. Only if you want to take a direct train, you need to take the Guruvayur express.
