Amazing temple, wonderful locale and lots of peace for the mind. Birla mandir is a beautiful construction, visit in the evening during dusk to enjoy the temple as well as the wonderful view of the city.

Structure of the temple is really eye catching and well maintained by the temple authorities. Surroundings are beautiful. It is worth clicking the view with you eyes.

A couple of thousand tons of white marble - a modern day operation by a corporate group - the Birla Foundation - housing idols of Venkateshwara, Padmavati and Andal. Several other smaller shrines housing Shiva, Ganesha, Hanuman, etc.etc. Just in case all this is not enough, also some writings from Gurbani. Hopefully, between all of them, you wilI gain redemption.... More

Been there in Birla temple with my family and in – laws, we had great time. But there should put on elevator for elderly people as climbing the stair can be daunting task for old people. Try to visit in early morning or in evening you will have beautiful view of the city

The marble structure of the temple and the lovely idol of Lord Venkateshwara is really eye catching. Visited this temple during sunset. The location provided a very beautiful view of the city. The cool breeze was pleasant except the odour which it carried from the lake.
