Introduction

On 18th April 1990 the SLN sabha was inaugurated by Dr. S Venkata Varadan, Director Nehru Planetarium, Mumbai. and soon after a few months i.e. on 4th August 1990, it was registered as a public trust. From this date onwards the SLN sabha started many ambitious and genuine projects, considering the need of people residing at Nerul.
At first, the sabha decided to build a temple of Lord Venkateshvara. The things worked out fast with the efforts of the members, and on 8th December 1991, on a pre-decided site at Nerul, Bhoomi poojan for the temple was performed by Shankaracharya Swamiji of Kanchi Kamkoti Peetham.
