Venkateshwara, also known as Venkatachalapati, Srinivasa and Balaji is a form of the Hindu god Vishnu.
Venkateshwara means the Lord who destroys the sins of the people.
According to the Hindu scriptures,Vishnu, out of love towards his devotees, incarnated as Venkateshwara and appeared for the salvation and upliftment of humanity in this Kali Yuga and is considered the supreme form of Vishnu in this age.

In iconographic depictions, Lord Venkateswara's eyes are covered, because it is said, that his gaze is so intense, it would scorch the universe.

Yes, I'm interested myself in that temple too. I wanted to visit it for a long time and finally got a chance. Want to show you some deities of the temple. Smile
The deities at the Malibu Temple include Venkateswara, Rama, Lakshman, Sita, Hanuman, Ganesh, Padmavathi, Bhoodevi, Shiva, Krishna & Radha.

The temple was built in an area of 4.5 acres and is located in Malibu Hills. Facilities at the temple include a temple kitchen. Smile
