The Surya Narayana Temple in Domlur was built by Sri Patel D. R Krishna Reddy in the year 1995, and it was inaugurated by his Holiness Shree Shree Shree Shiva Kumar Swamiji of Sidda Ganga Mutt, Tumkur.
The Surya Narayana Temple in Domlur is superbly constructed by expert and crafty artisan in Chola style. The Surya Narayana temple attracts a large number of devotees every single day, also on fairs as well as festivals that is done on Magha masa Sudha Trithiya.
The idol of Surya Narayana was bought from Badrinath and it is 3.25 feet in height along with the Prabhavalli. Underneath the deity, you can see the idols of Kashyapa and Aditi.
You can even see Vaishnavi, Brahma, Nagaraja, Ugranarasimha, Saraswathi, Panchamukhi Ganesha, besides Surya and reclining Adi Sheshasayi, kindly showering their benevolence for mortals below.
There exists an udhbhava huttha at precincts, which was formed after the platform was constructed.
The management of Surya Narayana Temple is doing yeomen service benefiting the people in surrounding area.
It still has a large open space and there is no rush of either Gods or devotees. The temple is very neat and clean - sparking clean. Cleaning seems to be an daily routine here. There is ample parking, partly attributed to the Kalyana Mantapa (or Marriage Hall) associated with it. Among the various deities in the temple, most are related to the Sun. The temple is not crowded. It does not promise to be a one-stop shop for all deities in the near future. Just as the ISKCON temple in Yeswanthpur has paintings on the inner ceiling, this has paintings on the inner walls. The paintings have a strong Rajasthani flavour - the Painter was either from the North of India or all his models were.
Annual Fair: The annual fair of Surya Narayana swamy in Domlur is held on Rathasaptami day. The 32 feet chariot is brought out only on the Rathasapthami day when the people pull the chariot with an abandoned dedication of holiness as well as happiness of being near God.
