Sri Sai Baba Mandir, Jai Shankar Street, West Mambalam, Chennai.

Aum Sai Ram

This is the 5th Temple visited by me during my 8th Pilgrimage to Sri Shirdi Sai Baba Temples at Chennai on Friday 23rd Sep 2011.

My 8th Pilgrimage at Chennai Started with a Visit to:

This temple of Sri Sai Baba has been built at Jai Shankar Street in West Mambalam. It is around 1km from Mambalam Suburban Railway Station & Thyagarayanagar Bus Stand. The Nearest Landmark to this temple are Panigraha Marriage Hall & Bajaj Authorised Service Centre.

Late Smt. Visalakshi Ammal has been instrumental in building this temple of Sri Sai Baba.

This temple was Inaugurated & Prana Prathistha was performed on 31st Aug 2007. A 5.5ft marble Statue of Sri Sai Baba was procured from Mumbai & has been installed in this temple.

1. Late Smt. Visalakshi Ammal was a Sai Devotee from her early 30's. After her husband's death at a very young age, she suffered a lot.

It later started as a Bhajan Mandali & Annadanam was performed in Small Level.

2. At the Age of 83, with the Support from Devotees, she purchased a Land to build a Sai Mandir as Baba had told in her dream that he would come to stay with her. It was all due to Visalakshi Ammal that this temple was built.
