About Sripuram Golden Temple

Sripuram Golden Temple is newly-built Sri Lakshmi Temple is aptly named the Golden temple because of its intricately-carved exterior, which is completely gold plated and lighted in such a way that it shines even in the night-time. The Sripuram Golden Temple is one of the major attractions of the Thiruamalaikodi village located in Vellore. The temple whose construction continued for seven years and was completed on August 24th ,2007, was built with the vision of spreading positive influence and change.

The temple’s design was spearheaded by, the Guru Sakthi Amma and is dedicated to the deity, ‘Shri Lakshmi Narayani.’ Initially, the temple was only meant to be a place of worship but recently it has been converted into a spiritual park.

The temple land covers an area of about 100 acres. The entire temple has been covered in gold for which about 1500 kgs of gold was used. The temple cost around US$65 million when it was finished. It’s more than just a pretty face, however. It also plays host to hundreds of devotees every day. The interior of the temple has been adorned by very intricately made statues of God and Goddesses. The temple walls have been inscribed with the teachings of Amma.

Sripuram temple has a star shaped exterior. It is said that the star path acts like a sponge and soaks up maximum possible energy from nature and provides a tranquilizing experience to devotees. Certain moral messages have been in scripted on the star path.

All in all, visitors can have a very uplifting and enlightening experience at the Golden temple of Sripuram. If they have some time then they could also visit the Vellore Fort which is located nearby.
