The Golden Temple is situated in a 100 acre lush green landscape in the middle of a star-shaped path, such that it absorbs maximum energy from nature, which creates enormous peace and brings relaxation to the devotees who walk through the starpath. Devotees walking through the starpath are blessed to read messages of truth and righteousness that enables them to realize themselves and transform into powerful beings. The ultimate purpose of the Golden Temple is to create righteousness and transformation in human beings.

  • The star-shaped path with twelve ‘auspicious’ vertices creates a divine energy form on the Earth, akin to the sacred Srichakra.
  • Messages of truth and righteousness are posted on both sides of the pathway to encourage people to read them and imbibe their meaning as they walk slowly towards the Temple. These messages will cover topics such as the purpose of human birth and human life, the things we should and we should not do, the need for devotion and many more.
  • Walking through the starpath, laid with these messages, creates a rejuvenating experience and reminds oneself of the true purpose of life and nature of the world.

The landscape of Sripuram is completely natural, created and managed using organic manure. One feels closest to one’s true self in this serene ambience. Water from all the major rivers of the country were brought to create the Ecopond – ”Sarvatheertham”. The creation of this pond has resulted in a wonderful ecosystem for birds and insects, complemented by over 20,000 saplings of various species.
