I very much enjoyed my experience of the golden temple once inside the gates. However, before you enter, it's somewhat like a carnival fair, full of stands where you can pay... read more

This was my 6th visit to Sripuram and it is always a delight! A walk around the star path is enlightening and uplifting. The money donated along this path funds a huge free hospital, school and recycling plant. A wonderful initiative as well as a peaceful spiritual place.

Great experience. I got tat 1990s landscaping with serene beauty feel in the temple area. Worth the money. Go in night time so u can see more golden light beauty

Nice temple. Requires a lot of walking. Nothing special on this temple. Tight security checking. Phone and bags need to leave at security.

It is supposed to be made of 15000 Kgs of gold.The temple is surrounded by water on all sides with lush green garden surrounding the main temple. The area is quite vast and very... More

I'm not impressed by impressive shows of wealth. That is what the temple seemed to me. I did not go in, though I have been on the street in front a couple of times. If seeing glitz and religious shrines are your thing, you will want to visit here.

I very much enjoyed my experience of the golden temple once inside the gates. However, before you enter, it's somewhat like a carnival fair, full of stands where you can pay different rupee amounts to skip lines, store your shoes/valuables, purchase bags to store your things, etc. This detracted from the spiritual experience for me as I don't think you...

With 1500 kgs of gold and water around in the center of star formation, this is a great show. A must visit but recommended to go for paid service as it will allow you to sit at the mandap for sometime.

Maybe I am a stickler for cleanliness, but the temple premises were stinking during rains. There was minimal efforts to keep the area clean. I do not blame the staff, the sheer influx of pilgrims would make it near impossible for them to keep up. The inner sanctum is very nice, but with all the pushing and shoving the experience... More

Located 8km south of the city of Vellore at Thirumalaikodi.This temple is a nice stopby attraction, however, I would not recommend that... More
