Sripuram Golden Temple
Last month returning from a trip to Danvantri Temple, Walajapet went with my family to Sripuram Golden Temple near vellore. It is built by Sri Narayani Peetam and is situated some 5Kms from Vellore downtown. When we went thousands of people were in the temple, after locking you in cages (like in Tirupati) they send you in batches to control the crowd. I suppose most of the crowd visiting were curious and interested to see the new golden temple rather than the deity. The temple, covering 55,000 sq ft, has intricate carvings and sculptures in gold. Except for the pathway, the entire structure has been made of gold and copper. About 400 goldsmiths and coppersmiths, including craftsmen from Tirumala-Tirupati Devasthanam, have completed the architectural marvel in gold in six years. The approximate cost of the temple is Rs 600 crore.Visit the official website here for more details and photos.
It was a long walk to the temple and inside the temple – as they make you walk a kilometre or two in a path formed in the shape of Srichakram (the holy sign of Vaishnavism in Hindu Religion). The main temple and surroundings have been done built aesthetically and maintained very well, the whole place is so beautiful and calm.
its very awesome place…..
i visit this place in june.it’s very nice.
And I have a question about the "symbol drawn on the wall".
it’s like a "SHANKH".
when I visit kozhikkode planetarium, I saw the "ARANMULA KANNADI".
It’s purely own kerala.
How this shape is printed on golden temple.
Is there any relation?
If I may correct you, Sri Chakram is the symbol of devi
I got lots of wealth and prosperity by just looking at this temple’s pictures, there are some magical powers in this. Got to visit this great temple, whenever possible.
