Could be the highest point in Hyd, can get a panoramic view of the city from here. Best time to visit in the evening, with the cool breeze hitting you.

Even after 03 decades the place is still kept clean tidy despite the influx of tourism that is booming in the country. Why dont we do the same with all the temples and mosques. We have Charminar but why is it kept like that despite being a Archaeological marvel.

Must visit if you're in Hyderabad! It gives you awesome view of city and very fresh air. You can just sit over here enjoying wind and scenic view in early morning or evening. And ofcourse, temple is nicely designed and maintained.

It is a must see place if anyone visits hyderabad. There is a beautiful view from the top of the temple of Hussein sagar lake and the statue. Very beautifully maintained temple. Only drawback is that it might be a problem for elderly people as there are quite a number of steps to climb. Even though there is a lift... More

Birla Mandir is very easy to locate and identify, being a skyline feature along the Hussain Sagar Lake, not withstanding the flyovers and other buildings that dot the landscape surrounding the lake. It is just a small deviation from the NH7, and it is perched neatly. If one is driving, it needs some hill experience, as both approaches that lead... More
