Sri Chakra Mahameru Temple, Yercaud Overview

The world's biggest Sri Chakra Maha Meru Temple comprises a three-dimensional pyramid on the temple which when viewed from the top, takes the form of Sri Chakra. Devotees believe that if you worship the Devi with Sri Chakra, it is equal to worshipping the ultimate force. The serene and vibrant ambience of the temple attracts many tourists every year. The main sanctum sanctorum is made up of white marble along with paved pathways and consists of a semicircular pit which when filled with water shows the reflection of the Sri Chakra Maha Meru forming the vimanam of the sanctum sanctorum.

Devotees believe that when they throw a coin in this pit and wish for something, the wish comes true. Goddess Lalitha Tripurasundari, who is the prime deity here, is true to her name as Lalitha which means the one who plays the role of creation, protection, and destruction. Since the worship of Sri Chakra also includes other Gods and Goddesses, beautiful wooden carvings of Saraswathi, Vishwaroopa Moorthy and Urthuva Thandava Moorthy are present here as well, each of them being 10 feet high and beautifully carved.

The temple is extremely vibrant and provides an ambience which is perfect for meditation. There are small fountains adorned with idols of Lord Buddha and other Gods in the middle along the long pathway while a small pathway leads all the way to the shrine of Guru Dhakshinamoorthy. The surrounding glass panes and flowering plants make up for a scenic background. The beauty of this temple is worth exploring and who knows dropping a coin in the pit can also make all your wishes come true.
