Unique place to visit... but.. make sure you are either ready to shell out money or walk... and hey... full pants please...or buy a lungi.. nothing historical about the place... you need to walk about 3 KM overall barefoot... + you have one place right at the end of the walk near the food area where the flooring is done...

We do not get temple feel. It is money making gold plated building with Narayani idol. We need to walk a lot , like exercising, lot of money invested for minting money. On 13 October 2016, when we visited, we were coaresced to purchase Rs 250.00 quick darshan ticket. Worst experience is, security female cleverly stole my wife's money bag... More

Sripuram golden temple is one of the best devotional attraction in vellore. Evening time is the best time to visit this place. When i visited this place in the year of 2013, it was well maintained and looks neat but now I strongly say this place is lack of maintenance and coming dirty smell from water. Hope management will improve... More

This is certainly not a religious place to visit! This place should be visited to experience the grandeur of a structure. The queues are well organized, and options are available to buy tickets to jump the queue. OK place to visit while travelling between Bangalore & Chennai.
