Sri Venkateswara Temple, Helensburgh, Sydney, Australia

Helensburgh is one of the famous Lord Venkateswara mansions in the Southern Hemisphere. The temple is built atop a hillside 400 meters above sea level. The temple has four "praharam" (surrounded by corridors). In addition, road vehicles to reach the temple.

The construction of Sri Venkateswara temple began in 1978 when a small group of people who had the vision to build a Hindu temple, according to Vedic principles (Agama Sastras). We chose this site because of the divine in Helensburgh: "They say that the gods always play where groves are near rivers, mountains and cities, and sources of pleasure-gardens" Brihatsamhita

According to the ancient principles of Hindu temple construction, there are five requirements:

  1. The land must be a virgin (no construction should have been built before)
  2. The Land should be an island
  3. There must be a forest land around
  4. There must be a source of water nearby
  5. There must be an ocean, nearby

It's important to note that the Sri Venkateswara Temple Square has met all five criteria. The Mahakumbhabhishekam (consecration of the temple in the sacred waters) of Ganapati (Sri Vara Sithi Vinayagar) and the main temple of Sri Venkateswara, Sri Maha Lakshmi and Sri Andal was held June 30, 1985.

None of those who were part of the original group of people who have embarked on this daunting task no ides of the problems associated with the construction of temples. But we had enough good will and support of a wide circle of devotees in Australia and elsewhere. Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam He was very helpful and gave us much encouragement and financial support.
