Mithra:

Recently in June 2000, HH Tridandi Sriman Narayana Chinna Jeeyar visited
Sri. Venkateswara temple, Bridgewater, New Jersey. This temple is a Siva Vishnu
temple having all deities which include Srinivasar, AndAl, Sri. Mahalakshmi,
Rama parivaram, and Sita Krishna deities and Ganesha, Murugan with Valli and
Deiva
yanai etc. The temple was consecrated by the Jeeyar in 1998.

He was welcomed with Purna Kumbham by the trustees. He entered first going
around
all deities in pradakshina direction before coming to Srinivasar sannidhi. The
message
is that we pass around all deities instead of ignoring them and going straight
to
Sri. Vishnu Sannidhis.

You all know that some vishnu deities belonging to 108 divya desams are within
Siva temple.
