Lord Balaji Temple Chicago
OCT 12 2008
You must have heard about the famous temple of India called Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams where lord Balaji is worshiped, Balaji temple in greater Chicago is just a replica of that. This temple is in suburbs, Aurora is around 40 miles away from Chicago downtown and it takes around 1 hour to get there from Chicago downtown with moderate traffic.
Official website of Sri Venkateswara Swami temple is not that well designed or user friendly but if you spend some time on the site you will find lots of information about the lord Balaji. Here is also the address of the temple in-case you need it.
1145 Sullivan Rd
Aurora, IL 60506
What I liked about the Chicago Venkateswara Balaji temple?
- This temple is far away from the main city and at a quite place.
- This temple is build by the richest community so Prasad is free to everyone, if you reach there then you are destined to get the Prasad not like other places where you have to buy every time.
- I love south Indian food and here it is available at low price. The quality of food is really good and affordable. I love to eat my lunch or dinner when I visit this temple.
What I didn’t like about Sri Venkateswara temple Chicago?
- Once the authority of the temple asked my friend to stay out as she was not in proper dress code. I don’t know why is it so, why someone will have to be in a temple in Chicago with a salwar suit but not with a jean on. I guess the committee might have valid reasons to that but I didn’t like it. My bad, this complain was for Chicago BAPS temple not for Balaji temple. Let me know if you have something which you don’t like about Chicago Venkateswara temple.
Let me know here if you liked or disliked something about this temple.
