New Tirupati Balaji Temple at Vyalikaval in Bangalore

The Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) will open a Balaji temple dedicated to Lord Venkateswara at Vyalikaval in Bangalore on May 23, 2010 with similar pujas held at the Tirumala Tirupati Balaji Temple. The temple has been constructed as per agama shastra under the guidance of TTD’s temple architects and stapathis. Apart from the murtis of Lord Venkateswara, Padmavathi Ammavaru, the temple will also have murtis of Andal, Ganesha, Rama, Seeta Mata, Lakshmana, Anjaneya, Radha and Krishna.

P Shyamaraju, president of the local advisory committee of TTD, said that the objective of constructing the temple was to cater to the needs of the devotees in Bangalore. “The installation of the idols will be held between May 21 and 23 and the temple will be open for public on May 23 from 1 pm,” Shyamaraju said. He said the TTD had spent Rs 12 crore for the construction of the temple. 

Stating that the two-decade old dream of Bangaloreans will be realised with the inauguration of the temple, Shyamaraju said. The new temple will have the same pujas as the main temple at Tirumala. “The existing marriage hall will be converted into an auditorium for religious functions. We will organise mass marriages and upanayana for the poor people,” he added.
