Beautiful temple but money oriented

Very beautiful temple. However, everything is money oriented here, right from the parking to the amount of time spent allowed to spend in main gold temple. No cameras or other... read more

Definitely worth a visit. No photos inside where the real beauty is hidden. Absolutely stunning. Very peaceful once inside. A long reflective walk to the temple with lots of greenery. But very money orientated and some of the staff were quite rude. Make sure you pack light if you go here and don't take anything too valuable as you have... More

No doubt this temple is famous among and worshipped by people all over India. No doubt they really used a lot of gold on the temple. But here some a few facts to consider: 1) this golden temple is less than 20 years old, not an ancient structure. 2) It is so popular among domestic pilgrims that they designed a... More

Very beautiful temple. However, everything is money oriented here, right from the parking to the amount of time spent allowed to spend in main gold temple. No cameras or other valuables things allowed inside.

This temple is very famous in Tamil Nadu. There is a very long path to reach the main temple. This temple represents the traditional and spiritual value of Tamil Nadu.

It is not exactly in Vellore, away about 20 kms from the city. A very big temple campus, created thoughtfully to address all aspects including control of visitors. View in night is beautiful, with golder glow above the temple and image in water pond around it. What comes as a big surprise is the "parikrama" wall that all able body... 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.
