Sree Rama Kshetra:

After our visit to Dhrmasthala, we continued our journey towards Katteel Durga temple.

On our way we saw the arch of this temple as Sree Rama Kshetra.

Shri Shri Athmananda Saraswathy is founder of this temple. He is disciple of Sri Nityananda Swamiji. The temple Rama kshetra was built in Dharmasthala village as per the wish of his Guru.

The magnificent temple structure was so colourful and attractive; we stopped and visited the temple.

We have to climb steps to reach the main entrance. The temple was in the style of Iscon temple. We entered into a big hall with high ceiling.

To left we see steps leading to the main sanctum of Sri Rama and Seetha made of granite stone, which is very attractive.  To other three sides we find about 36 small individual sanctums.

In these sanctums, we see Ganapathy, Hanuman, Brahami, Maheswari, Kowmari, Vaishnavi, Varahi, Mahendri, Chamunda, Durga matha, Soorya, Chandra, Budha, Bruhaspathy, Sukra, Sani, Raghu, Kethu, Bairava, Lord Siva, parvathy, Vishnu, Brahma, Saraswathy etc.

We find steps leading us down from another side. In the main hall there are marble idols of Swamiji and Shiridi Baba.

The premises are clean and well maintained. Out side the main temple within the compound we see Navagraha’s with their vahana in individual small mandapam.

There is a separate mandapam with a small sanctum for Nagar.
