Great South Indian style of architecture, wonderful temple gopurams and more over the most adorable deity… this is a brief description about the worlds richest temple, Tirumala Tirupati Sri Venktaeshwara Swamy temple. Now, it will be pride to Chennai that the city may have the abode of Venkateshwara which looks like a mirror image of Tirumala Tirupati temple.
Press Trust of India Reports:
- The city may soon take pride of having a Lord Sri Venkateswara temple similar to that in Tirumala hills in Andhra Pradesh. The Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD), which manages the world-famous temple in Tirupati, has proposed to construct a similar temple near here, its chairman D K Adikesavulu Naidu told reporters here. He said the board had proposed to construct the temple on 10 acres of land along the scenic East Coast Road (ECR) near here.
- The effort was aimed at catering to thousands of pilgrims thronging the temple town in Andhra Pradesh, but forced to wait for a long period, sometimes even days, before getting a ‘darshan’ of the deity, he said. The proposed temple would have all facilities as in Tirupati, like tonsuring and a marriage hall, besides a library, he said.
