Sri Lakshmi Narayani Temple - Sripuram – Vellore


This Mahalakshmi Temple-Sri Lakshmi Narayani Temple is built to have the direct aspect of Lord Venkatachalapathi in Tirupathi.  Hence, it was named Tirumalaikodi, in early days.  After the completion of the construction of the temple, the name of the place is changed as Sri Puram.



This is a temple covering 100 acres, every inch of land reminding the beauty of nature and the grace of Almighty and a spiritual environment.  Indeed, it is a different world altogether.  The mandap and the artificial fountains opposite welcome the devotee.  Besides the two pathways to go in and come out, there are 18 entrances behind the mandap representing the 18 characters of the human mind.  The temple is designed according to Sri Chakra star lines.  The temple is in round shape.  It looks as if a Sri Chakra when viewed from the upper side.

Due to security and maintenance concerns, the devotee has to deposit his/her cell phone, camera and other articles including eatables at the entrance office. Every corner and part of the temple speaks but beauty and serenity.  Modern lights along with traditional stone lights make even night a day in the temple. There are more than 3,000 trees around.  The wind blows soft.  Devotees are advised to maintain silence.  The temple by itself built with gold, even the paintings in other parts as decorative arches and madaps are of golden colour making the temple glitter for ever.  There is a 27 feet tall, 10 tier traditional lamp opposite to Mother’s shrine made of Panchaloka, an alloy of five metals.  This has space for lighting thousand lamps.  There are statues of Mothers Durga, Lakshmi and Saraswathi in the meadows of the temple with artificial hills and falls.
