Indians who feel home-sick feel very homely at this place. Tamilians in their traditional style, Telugu people and other Indians walking in groups, talking loudly, laughing, joking etc makes the visitors forget that it is Pittsburgh. They will have the feeling that they are in a typical South Indian temple in India.

Inside the temple premises, the main deity is Lord Venkateswara. The other deities inside the temple include Lord Ganesha, Lord Shiva (in lingakaram) and Goddess Parvati.

Like every other Indian / Hindu temple in the U.S, there is a canteen inside the temple where one can relish mouth-watering typical South Indian veggie stuff. Visitors can enjoy typical South Indian veg food like tamarind rice / pulihora in a typical South Indian atmosphere in a Western country.

For Indians, a trip to Pittsburgh would be one of the most enjoyable trips in the U.S as they can have the darshan of Lord Venkateswara in the divinely atmosphere and get themselves energized with positive vibes for a recharged and refreshed feeling.
