This was a beautiful temple but not as pretty as other Birla temples in other cities. It was interesting though and you can buy souvenirs there, we didn't because it was our first temple in India and thought we would find more temples with their own shop, but no...

You can "wander around" to your heart's content and take it all in at your own pace. No one bothers you in any way inside the temple. Beautiful and well-kept.

Lovely temple. Beautiful Architecture. I think it would be more soothing to the soul if they had bhajans playing in the background.

If you want to see a nice, well built place, please visit here. If you are looking for some solace by visiting a temple, then this is not the place for you. Too artificial structures which does not bring in any peace but you leave with a wow feeling because of architecture
