Nice and neatly maintained temple. The Locatioin is amazing and gives u a bird's eye view of the city. Preferable try to visit in evening hours and if possible not in summer as mercury might really raise high in Hyderbad during summer. You can also visit the Planitorium near by over all a good place for quick weekend evening

Visited the Birla Mandir quickly on the way to the Buddha Statue. Great views and very peaceful location. Keep in mind you cannot take pictures but outside the entrance.

We came here at sunset,after visiting the Hussain Sagar lake,as it is quite close by,and the view of this lake from the temple,is quite poetic.

It is a must visit place if you are new to Hyderabad. The temple is huge and built very nicely. From the top, you can see the hussain sagar also.
