Guruvayur: Purification (punyaham) rites were performed at the Guruvayur Sreekrishna Temple on Sunday after a razor-blade was found on the idol.

The rites were held after the Sheeveli in the morning.

Temple officials said the razor-blade must have got into the sanctum sanctorum through garlands.

“Those who made the garlands must have forgotten to remove the blade they used to cut flowers,” an official said.
