Suryanarayan Temple

Suryanarayana Temple is located in Domlur on old airport road in the heart of the city. Dedicated to the Sun God, it is one of the most prominent temples in the world dedicated to Lord Suryanarayana. 

Built in typical Chola architecture in granite with a huge tower covered with various colourful figures, the Suryanarayana Temple was built by Shri Patel D. R. Krishna Reddy in 1995.

The idol of Suryanarayana is 3.25 feet in height and was brought from the Badrinath Temple along with an ornate arch. Below the deity, the idols of Kashyapa and Aditi are placed. 

Other idols seen are Brahma, Vaishnavi, Nagaraja, Ugranarasimha, Saraswati, Panchamukhi Ganesha and reclining Adi Sheshasayi. 

Though thousands of pilgrims visit the Suryanarayana Temple on a daily basis, 

The preferred time to visit is during the annual fair of Suryanarayana Swamy held on the Rathasaptami day in January. 

The 32 feet chariot is brought out only during the fair during which the pilgrims are allowed to pull the chariot.
