Relax your mind at Sripuram Golden Temple, a spiritual park and temple that welcomes worshipers from all faiths. The gold-covered temple, intricately decorated with gold embellishments, houses the deity Sri Lakshmi Narayani.

  • It's nice ...sorry very nice. A vast place having well decorated interior. It's a nice tourist spot where discipline is well maintained. The temple is excellent. Metallic idols of different gods and goddesses are available for sale. Visiting the place will not go in vain... in fact it takes a bit more time to visit the temple.
  • Awesome spiritual experience. Services inside temple is very good. Golden Decoration of the main temple is very just fantastic. Main temple is surrounded by a water body.
  • Lovely. So peaceful and quiet. The structure is awesome. If uh want to experience its true beauty buy the cheaper ticket of Rs 300 and walk all the way.
  • It is situated in a huge campus. Que system is maintained nicely but it's too long especially for elderly. Main temple is very nice completely covered with Gold. Staff are very cooperative and there is facility for drinking water milk n toilets in every corner of the loooooonnngggg corridor of que..
  • A well maintained temple complex. But, commercialized to a great extent. There is a wow factor but not much of spiritual experience.
