Sri Ananda Sai Temple

History of the temple

Sri N V Ramanan & his family, the Founder members of this temple are Staunch Devotees of Sri Sai Baba. His mother had given him a photo of Sai Baba and advised him to offer his prayers to Baba. He is


working for the Chennai Port Trust at Present.One day during 1997, he & his friends were interested to know about their future and they approached a palm reader to get their horoscope read.The horoscope of Sri. Ramanan revealed that he would build a temple in the future. This was shocking to him as he never had any thoughts and wondered which deity’s blessing will shower on him to do this noble work.In the year 1998, he visited ECR Road - Injambakkam Sai Maindir & had a glimpse of Sai. Baba in his dream told him that, he will come in a new form and construct a temple for him. After this vision Sri. Ramanan came out of Family Bonding & started to live celibate.From 30th June 1998 onwards he stopped wearing slippers. He started to visualize Sai in his Atma. From then onwards he started to look for a suitable place to build a Sai Mandir.It was rather a very difficult task and at last, he was able to select a small plot at Nanganallur which is famous for its temple but there were some litigation in buying the same & the idea dropped out of his mind.During the same time one of his friends constructed a temple for Lord Ganesha and Sri Ramanan participated in the opening ceremony. During this event his friend introduced him to Sri. Leo Muthu the Chairman of Sai Ram Engineer College who himself is a Staunch devotee of Sai Baba & has also built a small temple for Sai Baba inside the College Campus.Sri. Ramanan after coming to know about Sai Baba's temple requested Sri LeoMuthu to help him in solving the problems related to purchase of land as this land was to be used for building Sai Mandir.Sri. Leo Muthu was pleased to hear this & agreed to donate 70 cents( Around 30000 Sq Ft) of land behind his Sai Ram Engineering College & requested Sri Ramanan to take the responsibility of managing the activities.
