Just "so so". Doesn't have the deep-profound aura of a proper ancient India temple. Just a bit a pastiche with ludicrously neglectful priests.

It's a very subtle thing to feel the vibration of a place, but here if your mind is quiet you can feel the essence of India and it's great spiritual traditions. I felt a deep calmness here that is rare in most of the world.

Close to Gole Market and approachable by the Metro. Almost 75 year old temple also known as Birla Mandir. Very clean and well maintained, open to all based on Gandhian virtues. Try to be there for the evening aarti which is a wonderful sight. Do visit if you are fond of a serene experience in a modern temple

The Birlas are known for their temple-building spree. They keep building temples across the length and breadth of India. This is their most famous temple in the NCR region. It is built in the simpler Nagar style. Though it is made of brick and mortar instead of pure stone as the ancient Hindu temples are built of. The upkeep of... More
