Golden Temple -History





Brief History of the Golden temple.
The Sri Lakshmi Narayani Temple located in 'Sripuram' (spiritual town) in Thirumalaikkodi, about seven km from Vellore, was constructed by Sri Sakthi Amma, head of the Sri Narayani Peedam,Thirumalaikkodi.






A large number of devotees gathered for the occasion. for its Unique structure .
It is a unique temple whose 'Vimanam' (Top portion of the temple ) and 'Ardha Mandapam' (middle portion of the temple) have been coated with gold both in the interior and exterior.
Twelve layers of gold foils have been pasted on copper sheets embossed with the designs of Gods and fixed on the walls.
One-and-a-half tonnes of gold has gone into the design of the Sri Lakshmi Narayani Temple, which has been built at a cost of Rs.300 crore. 100-acre site



The temple has been designed in such a way that visitors can reach the golden temple only after going through a star-shaped pathway, which has the messages from the Vedas on both sides.
If you see the temple, you might even think that the temple is made of gold. And your guessing will be correct.
The Golden Temple is about 140 km from Chennai at Tirumalaikodi in Vellore district. Sri Narayani Peedam, a private religious charitable organisation, built the temple. And the glittering monument also boasts of some glittering figures.
According to Sri Sakthi Amma, the decision to have the temple coated with gold is only to attract visitors and enable them to get wisdom through the messages of the Vedas, which they will have to read before reaching the temple located on sprawling a 100 acre-site.
"The actual estimate is about 300 crores. The amount of gold that went into it's making is 1,500 kilos," says head, Sri Narayani Peedam, Sri Sakthi Amma. A breathtaking wonder of intricate designs, the temple dedicated to Goddess Narayani (laxmi) is in the midst of lush greenery spread over 100 acres.
Except the pathways, even the roofs and the pillars of the temple are made of gold as about 1.5 tonnes of the metal went into its making.
The Peedom (founders of the temple) says the funds for building the temple were collected from NRIs. But is this an attempt to match up to the other golden temple.

Anyway the Golden Temple built with a Divine Thought with 1.5 tonnes of gold and which is already on its way to making history.
A must visit holy place Which everyone must visit in their life time.. ..
