Overview

The golden temple of 'Sripuram' is a spiritual park situated at the foot of a small range of green hills in a place known as "Malaikodi" in the city of Vellore in Tamil Nadu, India. The salient feature of the Lakshmi Narayani temple or Mahalakshmi temple is that the interior as well as the exterior is coated in pure gold!


The temple with gold covering has intricate work done by artisans specializing in temple art using gold. Every single detail was manually created, including converting the gold chunks into gold foils and then mounting the foils on copper. A keen eye will tell you that every detailing in the temple art has significance from the vedas.


Take a moment to simply meditate in the calm and peaceful Golden temple and behold the majesty of the yellow shine. After spending some time getting to know the rich and deep history of the temple and its surrounding complex, enjoy a comfortable ride back to your hotel in Chennai.
