Cant believe there is a temple somewhere on outskirts of Pittsburgh. But its a beautiful temple and they do have Gods on wheels whom they take out through the city once a year!
we visited this temple for my son hair cut. customer services are excellent. but finding parking is difficult. temple is very busy, and cafe have excelent choice of food with limited seating capacity
We came from Toronto, ON and the drive was worth it. Big temple with prasad for less money. The Archana was performed very well. Beautiful place.
I feel like this is one of the best temples in America. It was a pleasant experience and the events that occur there are lively which delights the many people that come from all over North America to see lord venkateswara. Even the prasadam is good as there is a cafe in the temple that sells prasadam as that seemed clean too and it is the best due to it being made by priests. Overall, if you're wanting to go to a temple with India feel, this is the place!
My Lord venkateswara blessings for everyone at this temple. Divine place and all prayers are answered. I have been twice to the place, temple website has nearby motel accommodation which are very good for a decent price. Temple food is awesome.
Feel like in India. This is my 3rd visit to the temple. Deity decoration is 👌👌👌 .. The hilly roads all around in Pittsburgh remind of Tirupathi. must go atleast once when in east. Prasadam is very tasty especially tamarind rice.
The Pittsburgh temple is a special place. Since this temple has been around for ages (since 1975), it is quite well known among Indian expats in the US as well as tourists from India. The temple is so iconic that it has almost attained a pilgrimage status. The temple maintains a traditional feel and as you walk in you feel that it be in any temple in south India (minus f course the throng of devotees). For people driving great distances in the US to visit the temple, the south Indian cafeteria offers a welcome relief with some delicious South Indian food.
Hmmm...the visit is shocking to me, why? Please read all of my story here, and me and my friend Gangulu thought to write some what a strong review ..so the story goes like this...now a days Iord Sai or other gods may be popular, but there were times where lord venkateswara is the only kaliyuga avataaram .. and I headed about pittsburgh temple so great since my school days of 1975( I initially wondered why? Because there is coverage in then news papers like eenadu (I believe eenadu started around 1974, my father subscribed to it as he liked the eenadu news paper in it's first day release, wrote on the paper" eenadu prarambham", and he recently passed away in November 2015 where his attachment to lord venkateswara so great, he named his son srinivasa Prasad daughter padma latha) ..pittsburgh temple is constructed and much funded by TTD in and around 1975...now what I see in schedule is ...suprabhatam at 9AM ....what a shame...can I expect giving thalaneelaalu here now?....hahaha...lot of dead people's heart and aathma who felt so great about this temple ...may be crying...now..no wonder why lord venkateswara's popularity went down...can i expect is it by the nature of trustees (are tgey now kaliyuga bhasmasuras...I hope not...they might have some poorva janma sukrathams..where they became current trustees ) ..I wonder pittsburgh temple may be honeymoon for current TTD workers..I just roamed in and around the beautiful Pittsburgh now..so much mid town poverty I see here...they may have white skin or black skin...are they not people of the God...don't they deserve service as they offered their city to construct the temple here in Wii5 ? ...what a pity state for lord venkateswara and his first ever usa town?
