The golden temple is a magnificent place to visit at any point of time. The temple with its gold (1500 kg) covering, has intricate work done by artisans specialising in temple art using gold. If you are looking for a memorable moment, I would suggest you to visit when it is dark as the temple would glitter as the lights around it would make it to.It is known to be the most peaceful place to visit in Vellore.The salient feature of 'Sripuram' is the Lakshmi Narayani temple whose Vimanam and Ardha Mandapam is covered with pure gold, housing the deity Sri Lakshmi Narayani (female consort of Vishnu Narayana). The temple is located on 100 acres of land and has been constructed by the Vellore-based charitable trust, Sri Narayani Peedam, headed by its spiritual leader Sri Sakthi Amma also known as 'Narayani Amma'.
