The view is great and try to go late in the evening, the lighting is really nice. The entire city of hyderabad can be viewed from here. Try going on a diwali night, you won't regret. However the mobile phones and cameras are allowed only on some days.

Its a an amazingly scenic and calm place where you can go any time of the day or evening and will still feel peaceful and content. A grand view of the city treats your eyes after you choose to stand for some time post darshan and inside its very well organized and maintained. IMO the best time to visit is... More

Built of marble, nice ambience. They maintain it very clean. There is a saying" Once God appeared in Birla's dream and told him that as long as he keeps the brick moving for temple constrctioin his business will flourish". May not be true but interesting. Cameras/ mobiles are not allowed inside. Nice view of hussainsagar lake from here. Keep things... More

It is a must see especially by evening when the lights are on. Gives a wonderful view of the city below. 2 good things I really appreciate here are that the car is allowed till a good point with ample parking space. Lift is there for those having trouble climbing steps though it was not working when we visited.

Nothing different compared to the other Birla Mandir's of the country. Situated atop a hill might be the only USP. The lights in the evening add a bit of magic to the whole complex so would recommend visiting in the evenings. More of a visit and leave rather than visit for religious purposes since the main deity isnt offered aarti... More

Temple is very clean and at a very good location. You can see the entire city from there. There is not much rush in the temple. The architecture is very nice. And you have arrangements for drinking water midway. You have to deposit every electronic item and cameras and they are deposited outside the temple with temple authorities.
