Beautiful temple open to the public. Remember you have to take off your shoes to walk around as well as dress modestly. No shorts or tank tops around. Just something to be aware of if you visit on a hot day. This temple is filled with rich history and gorgeous architecture

A lovely temple in Cary, NC that has been built in a typical Indian style. Lord Venkateswara murthy is huge and resembles the one at Tirupati. The ambience is really peaceful and calms you down.

Just in the neighborhood is a Shivalaya too. In there several gods are kept, like Ganesha, Shiva Linga & Devi. When I visited there was a Abhisheka happening with all mantra being chanted. It was a very divine experience.

One of the wonderful secret, must see places in the Triangle.I agree that the outside of temple makes you think the inside will be even more structurally more significant. It is not more structurally impressive. However, if you are lucky to visit with people and leaders present - the spirit and love that washes over you makes the inside more meaningful than the brinks and mortar (and elephants) on the outside.

The Venkateswara temple has been built in the true Indian style. The size of Lord Venkateswara is huge and resembles the one at Tirupati. The ambience is really refreshing and peaceful. You could spend sometime meditating. Just few yards away there is a Shiva temple. There are many activities as per the Hindu religious calendar. Must visit temple for all Hindus.

When you see the outside of this temple you will be expecting a lot on the inside, but you may be disappointed. The exterior is constructed of concrete with very intricate carvings of Hindu figures; quite magnificent. The interior of the smaller building doesn't look much different than what we would call a fellowship hall in a Christian church. The main difference is the niches with statues embossed in gold. The interior of the larger temple is also not very ornate on the inside and has more golden statues in niches. What I found most enjoyable was the hospitality of the priests and members of the church who were present when we visited. They were happy to explain their religion and generous in offering food which was presented as an offering. We visited during the normal visiting hours without any prior reservation. It's definitely worth a trip if you keep an open mind. You may want to read about Hinduism before you go.

This temple looks like someone just put it there cause it looks so unique in this area. With the right donations, this temple will be a top attraction in all North Carolina in a few years. Free admission, beautiful on the outside. Very quiet in the inside.

There is no need to travel to southern India to experience the welcoming nature of Hindus if you live in the Raleigh-Durham area. This temple is open to all who are genuinely interested in Hinduism and Indian culture. I was visiting with friends who are Hindu and, as far as I know, we did not have a pre-arranged tour. One may be well advised to inquire in advance if a tour of the premises is desired.

Very nice temple in RTP area. When we visited, some of the deities were newly installed and the whole place looked freshly painted. Was expecting a cafeteria to taste the traditional dishes but it was not available. During the weekend, a food truck stays for a short period with limited supply of food
