Visited this temple before visiting the Gurudwara - here people were prepared to make money with whatever they could example - asking to pay for leaving the shoes outside the temple which I found to be a disgusting practice at a lot of places

This is a medium-size and well-done Hindu temple in central Delhi. Previously a hallmark of our Delhi-tour for out of town guests, but recently we find much more value in taking the 10-15 drive over to Akshardham instead. The Birla Mandir is aging in the way that a VW minivan does... It has some pleasant "vintage" charm... But really isn't... More

A pleasant enough Indian Temple, some nice stone carvings in the grounds and icons inside the temple were the most exciting parts. OK to visit if you're in the area. Quite a central location.

lego like attempt at recreating Hindu architecture. Cheap and dusty, not very clean and waste of land. Need to get hold of proper architects and look at Indian history, plus temples like Mahabalipuram and get skilled sculpters to re decorate.

Like all temples, it also gives lots of calming effect to mind, well kept. Although you can visit any day, but its charm reaches at peak during fetivals.
