We recently visited the Mahalakshmi temple in Sripuram in Vellore. The temple is magnificent and the deity divine. We went via road from Blore - Vellore and the road is fantastic barring a few patches and the tolls that put a dent in the pocket. The temple premises are in the shape of a star. The darshan is well organised... More

The temple looks awesome. The entire temple ,its pillars and other structures are in solid gold.To crown it all there is a pushkarani (tank) where the reflection of the temple is seen, when the entire temple is illuminated. The best time to visit is between 6.30 PM and 8 P.M. The darshan closes at 8 PM.To facilitate stay after darshan,... More

We traveled from Chennai to Vellore. The temple looks really elegant and is well maintained. I give 4 stars for that. Certain things let me down. I did not get the feel of visiting a temple. Maybe coz there was information overload regarding the people maintaining it. Also, the weather was too hot but still no proper arrangements to walk... More

I had a chance to visit the temple during my visit to Kancheepuram. The temple is situated in Vellore and is hardly around 1 hour drive from Kanchi. To start with, it is not a traditional temple at all. It was a real surprise after visiting all the temples in Kanchi. The Golden temple is really a modern temple which... More

This place is a delight to everyone's eyes. Though you can very easily make a one day trip (from Bangalore 220 kM) for this place, I would strongly recommend a night stay in sripuram for two reasons. 1. You dont want to miss the real beauty if the temple after sunset. 2. You dont want to rush in and rush... More

The Golden Temple of Goddess Mahalaxmi is about 200 kilometers from Bangalore. I along with my family started at 7am in the morning of August 9, 2014 by car and we reached the temple by 10:30 am. One has to travel on Bangalore-Chennai high-way via Hosur and Krishnagari to reach the temple. Make sure you take left turn after Krishnagiri... More

We visited this Temple 4 times, and every time enjoyed the night time visit, the gold plated with light, really beautiful looking, the reflection you have to remember the experience. Really very organized arrangement, good administration, neat and clean. You have to follow the rules and special entrance also available. You can see the worship, sitting infront of GOD. Environment... More

The Sripuram Golden temple is something that only seeing it (Especially at Twilight and night) make you feel the inner peace of mind. I was told that its crowded on the most important day of Varalakshmi Puja and that we would face a huge problem, but surprisingly, we had no problem in going around the Temple and some points in...
