President Ram Nath Kovind today offered prayers at the Guruvayur Sri Krishna Temple along with his family members.

The dignitary was received with 'Purna Kumbham', the temple sources said.

Clad in a 'kasavu mundu', the traditional Kerala attire, Kovind spent about half-an-hour at the shrine.

He gave ghee as offering to Lord Krishna, they said.

Governor P Sathasivam also accompanied the president to the shrine.

There was heavy security at the temple complex during the Kovind's visit.

The Guruvayur Sri Krishna Temple is one of the most significant Vaishnava temples in south India.

'Purna Kumbham' literally means a full vessel and symbolically it is a sign of plenty.
