Last month we have visited this Balaji temple located at BridgeWater, New Jersey. Nice and Peaceful temple located at the address 1075 Route 202/206, Bridgewater, NJ-08807. It is easily reachable for Indians from Northern New Jersey and surrounding areas.
The temple’s official website contains the driving/transit details: http://www.venkateswara.org/conveyance_1.htm#publictransportation
Temple is so beautifully landscaped and it has huge parking space. This temple has 2 entrances, in the corridors nicely drawn painted rangoli will welcomes you. And in the main gate there is a huge Dwaja kambham. Once entered you will find in the center of the temple Sri Venkateshwara/Balaji Swami’s idol . God is so beautifully decorated and temple is so well maintained and consists of many Idols including Ganapathy, Subramanian Swamy, Ram Lakshman and Sita, Lord Shiva and well carved Nandi, Meenakshi Amman, Navgraha and many more. All god Idols are placed on richly decorated sannidhis you will be mesmerized to see. You will completely forget that you are in USA and create a pleasant atmosphere and it feels like that you are in Tirupati Balaji temple. Bottom line is it is really worth to see.
Note: Inside the temple photography is not allowed.
Weekdays: 8:30 am – 11:30 am & 4:30pm- 8.30pm
Weekends, National Holidays and Festivals: 8:30 AM – 8:30 PM
Once you come out from the temple you find the Prasad stall. You will find that all snacks are reasonably priced. One more nice facility we found is gift and sloka book shop. You will get almost all sloka books in many Indian languages like Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Marathi, Hindi and in English as well.
There is a food court available inside the temple and here you can taste many south Indian dish varieties like Dosa, Idli, Pongal, Poliyogare, Curd Rice, Vada, Bhaji, Mango Lassi and many more. The prices are again will be very reasonable (around $1 – $4 each). Guess what, all cooks who prepare south Indian dishes are Spanish!
