Golden Temple in South India

It is unbelievable. That there is a Golden Temple in South India.  All these days, we only know and hear about Golden Temple in Amritsar in North India.  Enough of information is available only about the Sikh Community praying at the Golden Temple.

Last Sunday (the 25th April, 2010), I travelled from Bangalore to Vellore / Kancheepuram along with family and friends by car only to see this new South Indian Golden Temple in Sripuram. It is about 200 km away from Bangalore via Krishnagiri by road.  We could not believe the new structure and the environment which was very peaceful.  One may visit the site at : http://www.google.co.in/search?hl=en&source=hp&q=golden+temple+vellore&aq=1&aqi=g10&aql=&oq=Golden+Temple&gs_rfai=

The adage 'seeing is believing' perfectly suits this temple.  A friend of mine who also visited the place recently says that one gentleman who did his postgraduation (may be MS) in USA and relinquished a plum job opportunity took this religious task and built the Golden Temple.  He is referred as Sri Narayani. Unbelievable.  You may also view video clippings in youtube : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iul-INEUCwk
