Golden Temple, Sripuram, Vellore, Tamil Nadu

Lakshmi Narayani Temple which is also referred to as The Golden Temple is one of the most beautiful Temples in the world. Located in Sripuram, which is around 8 km from the Vellore city center in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu, is spread across 100 acres of land. The Temple was inaugurated on 24th August 2007 & since then, it has been attracting a lot of tourists every year.

Its a Spiritual Park located on the foot of small hills in a place called Thiruamalaikodi. The Temple complex has a lot of greenery with saplings & also has lot of beautiful rock carvings. The Temple has a star shaped path way through which the devotees have to walk to reach the main Temple. So one has to walk around 2 km inside the Temple to look & get Darshana of Godess Lakshmi. The main Temple is surrounded by water & has enough distance apart from the devotee path way so as to avoid touching & theft of Gold :-)
