Message

The ancient DIVINE LOTUS LAMP (SRI PADMADEEPA) is the last refuge. When every thing falls you, when you are desperate, when you face business losses, when you faces serious family problems..
Whenever there is the Supreme Lord Krishna the master of those following the science of uniting the individual consciousness with the ultimate consciousness and wherever there is Arjuna, there is firmly established fortune, victory, power and virtue. This is my resolve..

Important Pilgrimage Places in India

Mahabalipuram & Kanchipuram.
Kanchipuram (64 kms from Chennai) is the ancient capital of the Pallavas famous as a city of 1000 Temples and still has 124 shrines. The first temple dedicated to Shiva was built in the 7th and 8th century and has paintings on the walls. Temples of Ekambaswara, Kailasanatha, Sri Kamakshi and Varadarajaswamy are of interest. Kanchipuram is also famous for its silks. The city of Mahabalipuram is famous for the seven pagodas. Here on the seashore is an interesting group of ancient rock hewn temples which are the examples of Dravidian style of Architecture.

Thirupathi
The presiding deity of the temple is Lord Venkateswara, an incarnation of lord Vishnu and the temple is the richest pilgrimage centre, after the Sree Padmanabhaswamy Temple in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, and the most-visited place of worship in the world. The Tirumala Hill is 853m above sea level and is about 10.33 square miles (27 km2) in area. It comprises seven peaks, representing the seven heads of Adisesha, thus earning the name Seshachalam. The seven peaks are called Seshadri, Neeladri, Garudadri, Anjanadri, Vrushabhadri, Narayanadri and Venkatadri.

Madurai
One of South India's great temple towns, Madurai is synonymous with the celebrated Meenakshi Temple. Situated on the banks of river Vaigai, Madurai has a rich cultural heritage passed on from the great Tamil era more than 2500 years old. The enormous temple complex is dedicated to Shiva, known here as Sundareshvara and his consort Parvati or Meenakshi.

Sree Padmanabha Temple - Thiruvananthapuram
Sree Padmanabhaswamy Temple is located in the centre of Thiruvananthapuram, the capital of Kerala. Rather unusual for Kerala the temple was built in the Dravidian style, featuring high walls and a 16th-century Gopuram.

Guruvayoor Temple
Guruvayoor is one of the most important places of worship in Southern India like Tirupati and Sabarimala. Most of the current temple building dates to the 16th and 17th centuries, the temple has gopurams in the east and the west. The eastern gopuram has an inscription which refers to the town as "Gurupavanapura".

Sabarimala
The temple is situated on a hilltop (about 3000 feet above sea level) named Sabarimala in Pathanamthitta district, which is unique in many respects. The uniqueness gathers its voice, as the temple is open to all, irrespective of caste, creed or religion. The temple is open for worship only during the days of Mandalapooja, Makaravilakku and Chitra Vishu, the pilgrims have to follow fasting for 41 days to cleanse their minds before going to Sabarimala.

Rameshwaram
The island of Rameshwaram spreads out over a 56 km swell with gentle sand dunes, embellished with the delicacy of casuarina trees and stark palms. This is a sacred place for Hindus since according to Ramayana; this is where Rama worshipped Lord Shiva to absolve himself of the sin of killing Ravana. A dip into the sacred waters of the Agnitheertham which was calmed by Rama is a must for Hindus.
