It is a visual treat

This temple is around 5 km drive from Vellore town. The roads leading to the temple is quite bad. There is ample paid parking at the temple. We opted for 250 rupees per person... read more

As a foreign tourist, I was urged by several Indians to be sure to visit this place while in Vellore. I will never go back, and cannot recommend that anyone visit this place. From the moment I bought my 250 rupee ticket for the special access speed line to my five minute viewing of the deity, I knew something was... More

The best time to experience the beauty of the place is early in the morning. Very unique temple fully gold plated. Looks fantastic to see in the moon light.

1. Must visit attraction at Vellore. 2. Took a cab from Vellore bus stand and it can be reached within 10-20 mins. 3. Some construction work going on, so expect not-so-good roads. 4. Free dharshan is available but seems like they are wantedly made to wait. 5. 250 rupees ticket is available which directly leads to inner sanctum where you... More

Even though the temple is built so good, the place is totally commercialized. Agreed that the monument has been laid after well planning. But its only for business. There is no sign at the entrance that mobiles are not allowed. Once you go inside at the first waiting room, there will be charge of Rs 10/mobile. After that will have... More

This temple is around 5 km drive from Vellore town. The roads leading to the temple is quite bad. There is ample paid parking at the temple. We opted for 250 rupees per person special darshanam. You can't take in mobiles but they need to be deposited. You and your handbags are subjected to scan. From the entrance it is... More

The golden temple of Sripuram "Mahalaxmi Temple" is a spiritual area situated in the city of Vellore in Tamil Nadu. It is about 8 KMs far from the City & Railway Station. You'll get auto-rickshaw to reach there. Whatever money these rickshaw driver asks, you should bargain and if you are a good bargainer then only you can manage. It... More

The Temple is grand, luxury and beautiful. Its just like a tourist spot, doesn't give a feel of a temple. The golden temple part is good. Its all about the money

The architecture of this huge temple is amazing. The structure is in a shape of star and in the middle is the real Golden Temple. There is a pleasant greenery all around, ust opposite to this temple, you can see the old temple which has Swayambhu Devi and the new one is constructed later. Locals suggested that we should visit... More
