Sri Venkateswara Temple SVT Sydney
The idea of SVT arose and this temple was constructed in the traditional Indian architecture based on Agama Sastras so that it would be a light house for spiritual guidance and solace. The Sri Venkateswara Temple Association was formed on 17th November 1978 in Sydney.
The Construction of Sri Venkateswara Temple started in 1978 when a small group of people had a vision to build a Hindu temple according to Vedic principles (Agama Sastras). They selected this divine site in Helensburgh because “it is said the gods always play where groves are, near rivers, mountains and springs and in towns with pleasure -gardens ” -Brihatsamhita.
The Mahakumbhabhishekam (consecration of the temple by sacred waters) of the Lord Ganapathi ( Sri Varasiddhi Vinayagar) and the Main temple of Sri Venkateswara, Sri Maha Lakshmi and Sri Andal took place on 30th June, 1985 with ample good will and support from a very wide circle of devotees both in Australia and abroad.
