Sree Kalyana Venkateshwara Swamy Temple Trust

In the cultural, Religious, Spiritual, artistic and social traditions of India, the part of temples is supreme and especially in Karnataka, the temples were built not just as religious centers but as multipurpose educational centers built on scientific foundations. Long before civilization appeared in foreign countries, India had achieved tremendous progress in various fields. The sculptors have depicted their creative, constructive thoughts acquired through many years of study of our Vedas, Upanishads and Puranas, in the temples in the form of unique works of art. The rulers, who ruled us, also carried on with the same enthusiasm, encouragement and have built temples at costs exceeding crores of rupees and have contributed in their own unique ways and hence have remained immortal and have given rise to unique styles related to each dynasty.
