Sripuram Golden Temple – Heaven on Earth

Sripuram Golden Temple located at Vellore is a Grand Temple. The Golden Temple design represents a star-shaped path (Sri chakra), positioned in the middle of the lush green landscape, which has a length of over 1.8 km. One has to walk along the star path to reach the temple in the middle, which has messages from Sri Sakthi Amma and from different faiths and spiritual leaders. It is the temple of Sri Lakshmi Narayani Maa.

You can enter the free Darshan line or hire a guide, pay his charges and he will explain you everything in detail. We entered the temple gate and hired a guide. The guide will look more like a pundit. We walked through the star path. You can see lots of counters selling books, prasad, ghee, puja beads and other goods related to God. The Sripuram Golden Temple is built according to Vastu Shastra. Each and every fine work in the legendary temple carries a significance, Whether it be the star path, quotations by Sri Sakthi Amma, the design of the temple, placement and direction of statutes, small pond, everything is marvellously crafted so that you feel at peace.

Once you enter the grand temple from the gate you will have a feeling of peace from within. The whole star path is shaded. As you walk through the star path you will be eager to discover more and more about the place. The green garden is very beautiful and the cold winds which pass through you will give you a heavenly feeling. Sri Lakshmi Narayani Maa is residing in Nature. There is greenery all around the temple. Even if you just sit on the benches kept in the temple premises you will have a feeling of paradise. Though there are lots of devotees inside the temple then also you will feel harmony. The guide told us that this temple was recently built keeping in view Vastu Shastra.

After completing our star path walk, we reached the main temple. As you will enter the main temple you will find a small pond. This small pond is filled with water coming from the mouth of elephants. It is a nice sight. The guide asked us to hold a coin on our forehead, make a wish, then drop the coin in the small pond and let our wishes grow into a big tree. We did as directed and moved ahead for Sri Lakshmi Narayani maa darshan. There was a long queue but we escaped the queue and went for direct darshan. We sat in front of the idol of Goddess Sri Lakshmi Narayani. The whole temple and idol of Goddess are made of gold. The yellow metal shines brightly in the sunlight. You will be fascinated by the beauty of the main temple containing idol of maa. You will have a divine feeling when you see the idol. You can really connect with Goddess here. The lotus at the top of temple catches cosmic energy. This cosmic energy gets transferred to the devotees through the idol of Goddess Lakshmi. You can feel Goddess presence here if you match the right frequency. We sat there for a while. The guide gave us a small bag containing tulsi leaves garland, a big photograph of Sri Lakshmi Narayani Maa and Sri Sakthi Amma and a photograph containing Sri Narayani Manthram.
