The poojas conducted at the temple are exhaustive, soul stirring and traditional. A visit to the temple can invigorate the devotee to lead a dharmic life. .

I love visiting the Livermore Shiva Vishnu temple. It is built like a South Indian temple. It is an amazing spiritual experience. This is not a tourist place but more to worship. There are many small temples within of Lord Shiva, Lord Vishnu, Ganesha, Durga, Navagraha and many more. The temple people are very friendly and all are welcome. Plenty... More

Other reviewers' photos of the temple intrigued me. It's well worth the less than an hour it takes to walk around the temple. We asked to go inside and were instructed to leave our shoes in a special room in the administrative building. We were told people could wear socks if they wished. Photos are not allowed inside, but if... More

Like the Tirupati style of architecture, the temple has a grand elevation and gaja stambha. It has Tirupati Balaji style dirty and Shiva linga along with other deities. Had delicious masala upma prasadams in the evening i

For years we were curious about the Shiva-Vishnu Temple. One evening we decided to visit. They are very accommodating to guests and simply ask that you leave your shoes in a cubby, and that you respect the worshipers who are there. It is beautifully designed and very peaceful. A nice cultural difference in Livermore.

One of the best maintained temples in Bay area. Peaceful location, nice architecture, and great place to visit for worshippers. Many priests chanting Vedic hymns give a great spiritual environment. Weekends are busy with hundreds of visitors. Well designed temple with dining and music halls.
