Recommended for a visit especially to give a balanced perspective after a Sikh temple visit. No photos re allowed in the temple so be warned, they make sure that none are taken so lave your camera in the bus.

It worth to visit - to discover very peaceful and harmonious atmosphere of Indian culture and religion. Better to go in the evening, to see ceremony, to enjoy nice colours, music and positive energy!!

The Birla Mandir is big and very clean...outside the temple you will find the prasad and flower tray which are quite cheap.. But before visit the temple, one should check the timings of temple as there is a particular timing on which... More

If you are not a Hindu, the place is just boring. Nice building, but it's not allowed to take pictures from the inside, and you must leave your camera, mobile and shoes in a room, especially designed for foreigners, where the guard asks for a tip. Not that much to see, and not interesting at all.
