I suppose it is somewhat blasphemous to say that a trip to a temple is "not worth it" - given that any temple should not need an excuse for us to visit it. However, the trip to this temple in Sripuram, near Vellore, rankled on multiple fronts - especially those who believe that a visit to the temple is about... More

I you have visited Vellore, & haven't visited this place, that means you haven't seen anything there. Go in the evening there, & you will the miracle. This place shines under the light. Simply astonishing.

We had heard about this temple from multiple people so decided to take a road trip over weekend. Combined with Yelagiri. We took the Rs 250 Seva Ticket and hence were able to get inside the temple quite fast. The overall design and architecture looks really nice. However, the temple looks more commercial. We had Prasadam (lunch) inside the temple... More

Went on Independence day. It was crowded. Got the seva ticket at 250, which was the best part. It allowed a faster entry and also was allowed to sit, very near the God. Extra book, prasadam was also provided, due to the seva ticket. If not for the seva ticket, would have probably taken upto 3 hours and none of... More

Sripuram is an amazing place to be. Designed in a star shaped structure with the main temple covered with gold , it is a very pleasant site to the eye. The temple is full of divinity and very pleasing to the mind.The main deity is Goddess Lakshmi. The general entrance is free, there are also other options like the Rs... More

With our busy chaotic life,road trips are an excellent way of spending some quality time with family along with refreshing one self. So take the break,we went on a road trip from Bangalore to Sripuram, which houses the famous golden Lakshmi temple. Picking few lines from wikipedia: "The temple is located on 100 acres of land and has been constructed... More

This has been one of the most peaceful temples I've visited in South India. The queue management is superb, and the ambience/environment is really relaxing. The temple is covered in gold (literally, all the pillars and roofs there have gold plates covering them) and there is a small water body on which the main temple is situated. Simply superb.

The temple is very beautiful . Well organised queues. The visitors could be more disciplined by keeping a good comfortable distance between individuals to make it more pleasant.

I am not a spiritual person, so didn't find anything nice about it!! So much wastage of money, go there to beleive it!! Built over 100 acres, long paths along the star-shaped maze with the central temple. All that glittered were gold!! the pond around would have close to Rs 1 lakh as coins, currency notes, credit cards, even passport... More
