Sri Chakra Maha Meru at Yercaud is the World's largest temple.

It is located in Nagalore which is about 7kms from the Yercaud lake. It is believed that God who was One, wanted to create many forms of himself. So he first created Devi, the cosmic female force. He then created Shiva, Brahma and Vishnu from his left, middle and right portions respectively. The Devi is hence believed to be more powerful than the Trinity and is called Parashakthi. The central point or Bindu of the Sri Chakra represents the cosmic union of Siva and Shakthi. The various triangles in the Sri Chakra represent innumerable other Gods and goddesses. The Mount Meru, also called Maha Meru when viewed from the top is seen as the Sri Chakra and hence it is called Sri Chakra Maha Meru.

Temple premise is very clean and well maintained. Photography inside the temple is not allowed. Must visit place in Yercaud.

The temple is beautiful and neatly maintained. The deities are carved beautifully and the garden in the temple is also very nice.

The temple is very nice and clean but they ahve not provided toilet facility for visitors who come from so far. When they have spent somuch money to make the temple nice , it would would have been considerate to provide toilet facilities being a tourist spot.

Please do not expect too much out of this place, and visit with an open mind. Out of the few places to visit , this is worth a shot.
