Nerul in Navi Mubai is a very beautiful place. People visit it for attaining tranquility. This is the place where I reside – I am Balaji Temple situated atop a small hill near the Nerul Railway Station. Devotees of Lord Balaji come to me to pray and worship. Lord Balaji is the heart and soul for many people in South India. People from all creeds worship him for good health and fortune.
The Other Gods
Apart from Lord Balaji, Ganapathy, Anjaneyar, Narasimhar and Padmavathy Thayar are some of the other gods who reside in my premises. People at first had a concern as the presence of Lord Ganapathy Sannathy along with Lord Balaji is not common in South India under my roof. But, in Maharashtra, the traditions are inclined towards Ganapathy aka Lord Ganesha.
Rajagopuram is my chief attractive feature. It is 60 feet high and distinctly built; visitors love to pose against its backdrop to click photographs; sometimes they plainly click the Rajagopuram. I feel proud to reflect the South Indian architectural style in Mumbai through this edifice.
Greenery all over Me
All over my place and around my dwelling, I am surrounded by beautifully nurtured and caressed gardens with the exotic flora and shades from the trees. Apart from this scenic attribute I also have something else to be proud of like the famous Palm Beach Road which passes by my side connecting Vashi and Belapur via Nerul.
I stand tall atop a serene hill and the landscape views from here are simply remarkable. The God residing in my premises is also called Lord Venkateshwara, and alternative for Lord Tirupati in South India. I thus try to bring the gods nearer to their followers in Maharashtra. So come visit me, I can promise you that you will forget all your life’s struggle and burden when you pray in my premises.
