In this land of a million temples, what is so special about this temple?
The Suryanarayana Temple in Domlur is one of the most beautiful modern temples in India! It is superbly constructed by expert artisans in the rich Chola temple architecture style. The temple attracts a large number of devotees every single day, especially so during the 8-day festival - Brahmotsava - on Magha masa Sudha Trithiya. The magnificent idol of Suryanarayana was bought from Badrinath. Along with the Prabhavali, it is 3.25 feet in height. At the base, you can see the idols of Kashyapa and Aditi.
Outside the sanctum sanctorum, you can see Vaishnavi, Brahma, Nagaraja, Ugranarasimha, Saraswathi, Panchamukhi Ganesha, besides Surya and a reclining Adi Sheshasayi, kindly showering their benevolence to the devotees below. There exists an amazing Udhbhava Huttha at the precincts, which was formed after the platform was constructed!
The management of Surya Narayana Temple is doing yeomen service benefiting the people in the surrounding area.
The temple is sparking clean - arguably one of the cleanest temple premises in the country. Cleaning seems to be a daily routine here. There is ample parking, partly attributed to the Kalyana Mantapa (or Marriage Hall) associated with it.
