About Nerul Balaji Temple

The Nerul Balaji Temple is situated on a small hill near the west side of the Nerul railway station in Navi Mumbai. It is similar in appearance to the Balaji Temple situated in Tirupati. The main deity in this temple is Shri Balaji.

Numerous other temples, namely the Vidya Ganapati Temple, Shri Padmavati Devi Temple, Hanuman Temple, Vishwaksena Temple, Ramanuja Temple and Lakshmi Narasimha Temple are also present within the premises.

Apart from this, deities like Shrinivasa with Sridevi and Bhoodevi made of 'Panchaloha' known as Utsava idols can be seen. In addition to this, there are also idols of Shri Rama, Sita, Lakshmana and Anjaneya and Shri Krishna with Rukmini in the temple.

'Bali Peetham' and the tall 'Dhwaja Stambha' can be seen on entering the temple. Next to the Bali Peetham and the Dhwaja Stambha are several steps leading to the 'Tiru Mamani Mandapam'. This temple also has a sannathi for Ramanuja, which is considered as an unusual practice in South India.

Opposite to the temple there is a Navagraha Sannathi, which is also frequented by tourists. This temple encompasses a Rajagopuram, which is approximately 60 feet high. In addition to this, there is a garden within the temple premises.

The rear side of the temple provides beautiful views of the Palm Beach Road, which connects Vashi with Belapur and goes via Nerul. Tourists can also get 180 degree views of the Nerul node of Navi Mumbai including the sea beyond the Palm Beach Road.
