We visited the temple in the Morning and it was clean and very peaceful. The temple has many other gods. Camera and Mobile phones are not allowed inside the campus.

If you want one place which is beautiful, full of religious fervour, peace and grace it is Birla Mandir in Delhi. Built by famous industrialist family Birlas in 1930s, it has the distinction of being inaugurated by father of nation, Mahatma Gandhi. This temple is dedicated to Lord Vishnu and his cosort Laxmi and has sections devoted to Shiva, Krishna... More

One of the well known places in Delhi, a personal or printed guide recommended for people unaware of Hindu deities, architecture and themes. Photography and cellular services not allowed beyond a check point.

In major cities, these temples by Birla family is making a good sense that, how much we earn and capable off everything we do and showing ourselves to this world is by supreme god only.

Although I am fond of older temples, Laksmi Narayan is a temple all visitors to Delhi should visit. However, as everything is written only in Hindi, either a guide or a good guidebook are needed! You'll have to take off your shoes but socks are allowed.

A beautiful temple to visit. If you were to pick a typical hindu temple and visit just one, this would likely be it (Akshardham not included as it is in category of its own). Try to visit during service hours as some rooms are closed otherwise. Can't take anything inside, including a camera or a phone so take some pictures... More

It's a nice temple to visit, if you have the time. Otherwise, Jhaswant Thada in Jodhpur and the Jain temples on Mt. Abu are far more beautiful.

Nice building, if you have no better idea then visit. Not a "must see" but worth to visit once if you have time.
