About Sri Balaji Mandir

Shri Balaji Temple also famous as Sri Venkateshwara Temple close to Narayanpura Village in the outskirts of Pune has been constructed by ‘Venky’s Chicken Company or the Sri Venkateshwara Hatcheries. That’s the reason people also often call it Venky’s Balaji. Built with marble and black stone, the main temple and other smaller ones are artfully constructed. The temple is well maintained, but during monsoons, the parking adjacent to the temple can be a little muddy. A red-carpeted path leads to the entrance of the temple complex. While entering the temple, the visitors are required to deposit their cameras as well as mobiles to a designated counter. Somewhat winding, a clean path leads to the main temple where devotees can pray and enter for darshan. The drive to the temple is enjoyable through the Bangalore highway and en-route there is a long tunnel stretching 1.5 km, that’s a wonderful experience for the kids too. Generally, the temple is never too crowded.
