The stark white marble construction of the Birla Temple is easily spotted from a distance. The temple was opened in the 1970’s and is dedicated to Lord Venkateswara. Shrines of Goddesses Padamavati and Andal are also placed here.
Built around giant boulders on the Naubat Pahad, the temple is known for its architectural accents of classic styles of Utkal (from Odisha), Dravidian (South Indian) and Rajasthani art. The main idol of the temple of Lord Venkateshwara stands tall at a height of 11 feet! The temple is also one of the few that does not have a bell as per the wishes of Swami Ranganathananda who wanted the temple to preserve its tranquil, meditative ambience.
Highlights of the temple include:
- The statue of Lord Venkateshwara.
- The brass flagstaff at the temple that stands at a height of 42 meters.
- Stories from Mahabharata and Ramayana that are covered out on the walls and celling of the temple.
- The view of the twin cities of Secunderabad and Hyderabad from the temple along with the view of the beautiful Hussain Sagar Lake.
The temple is basked in lights after dark and is an enchanting view in itself! Don’t forget to take a few moments to meditate when you visit the temple. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Hyderabad itinerary 2 days.
