It is always a pleasant experience driving to this temple. Its in the suburbs so there is a lot of parking spots unlike NY temple. The priests are all very well versed they speak multiple languages. The cafeteria has good variety of food.

A beautiful holy sight.
Very busy and they also serve food.
Colorful flowers and offerings all around.
It is a huge complex with intricate art around the building.
A pretty fountain outside.

It’s beautiful temple, but very crowded. Big fountain in front of the temple. Hard to find parking. Weekdays are better.

Well maintained, clean and organized. Has a cultural center, cafeteria and class rooms for various classes. Services are nominally priced and priests are dedicated. Nice temple

Hello, I am very sorry to say i had a terrible experience yesterday performing Seemantham for my wife in the temple. My requirement to the priest from day 1 was perform all that is needed as per vedic tradition and it appeared that the priest is just there for making money without doing all the required steps. He just kind of tried to cheat me by trying sort of doing the puja and did Ganapati puja and tried to fool me around by taking the word Varuna and Pumsavana and just changing the modulation but didn’t quite do the Nandi, Udaga-shanti Japam and Homam etc. He was in a rush and because we are layman and don’t have too much knowledge, may be. The whole event was from ~ 9.30-45 am to 11-11.15 am. In between he took a break of 15-20 minutes as he had other appointment to cancel, he said. I have to admit that i was late in reaching the temple from Connecticut, I had to be in the temple sometime around 8-9 am and I reached at 9.20-9.30 am because of the distance and traffic from Connecticut to Bridgewater (~115 miles). Normally after performing any pooja you will feel positive vibration...i literally felt so bad and was not able to sleep in the night and have even texted my experience to the Sastrigal himself so he knows that I am not a fool and also told the temple manager Shri Nagabhushan yesterday afternoon after returning home. Just don’t want anybody to undergo this kind of experience and lose belief in our practices and culture. This is all after spending close to 500 dollars. I am not taking the Sastrigal’ s name as I don’t want to create a bad goodwill for him in the forum but just want the temple to take necessary precautions going forward and don’t want anybody else to be a victim like this.

Temple in a very large area with almost all Hindu Gods/Goddesses installed. The main prayer area is at an elevated level. Lord Venkateshwara/Balaji is the main deity. The ground floor has area for private functions, library, cafeteria,shop for religious items, coat hanging area etc..
There is a large parking area for vehicles. At a nearby place - distance of 50 meters- in a separate building, functions like Hiranya Srardham etc can be conducted.
Very well maintained and peaceful place to pray for both Shivaites and Vaishnavites.

It is beautiful temple. You will definitely feel like visiting temple in India where you can get peace shanti from your routine pressure. Large number of people are visiting on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. Conducting classes. Very clean and well managed. Canteen facility is provided.

We had an AN visit to the Venkateswara Temple at Bridgewater NJ with family and children. Enjoyed the " darshan " and also the snacks at the Cafe at the temple. Also, bought some gift items from their gift store. The temple is well kept with main sanctum for Lord Venkateswara [Balaji] and other sub sanctums for other Hindu Pantheon. The entry was hazzle free in spite of a Saturday AN .
