Great views of Hyderabad from the temple, and overall a nice place to visit. Of course, expect crowds and queues. No mobiles or cameras are allowed.

The best thing about birla mandhir is the location and the beauty of the temple. The temple is constructed with pur ewhite marble and can be seen at its best at dawn just when the suns going down and the lights are coming up.

good place to visit. Just too much security, this place had so many things to capture with camera but security just didn't let the camera or mobile in. Nice scenic view as you will find across any Birla Mandir in india. it was a good experience overall. Nice view of hussain sagar lake from the temple

Its a place to see Balaji for a couple a minutes, to calmly look at the divinity, Instead in Tirupati its a game of nano seconds !! The statue to balaji is totally a replica of Sriniwas God, same width, same height !! But the beauty of Sriniwas at tirumala is unique and incomparable. There is lots of steps to... More

Its a lot like ISCON temples. Clean and neat. I didn't find anything remarkable except maybe the view from atop the mandir was nice. The marble steps were too hot to walk on the day time and the temple closes by 12.

visited at 12 noon and it was hot as hell. Ran to the top on 300 stairs carrying the kids. I probably would have had a better time after sunset.

I have been to this place with my family. Architecture wise its one of best temples that you find in Hyderabad. I think it took around 10 years for constructing this temple by Birla foundation. You would thoroughly enjoy the view after reaching atop of temple. Temple contains many Hind God shrines. Birla foundation should be credited for providing such... More
