Birla Mandir - Review

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.

  • It is a wonderful temple in Hyderabad. One of the must visit place for the tourist. But no cameras are allowed inside the temple. if you ever take a camera or mobile you will have to leave it in your vehicle and only then you can go to the temple. since we had the mobile in hand we give it to the cab driver and then visited the temple. The temple is constructed with full marbles. from the top of the temple you get a very beautiful view of Hyderabad city. but 12pm to 2 pm in the afternoon the temple remains closed.

  • The main attraction of this temple is God Vishnu. The whole temple is covered with white marbles. Free shoes stand and mob stores are available.The view above the temple is awesome. Here u can find peace at any point of time. The time schedules are 7am-12pm and 3pm- 9pm. This place is a must visited place in Hyderabad.

  • Birla Mandir, Built on hill, provides awesome view to city. The temple is massive and must visit. Also the temple is accompanied by a science museum , an art gallery , a planetarium and a library near by. The temple remains close for 2 hours in the day from 12 noon to 2 PM. Also both the museum and theme are located on hill so it is difficult to walk up. The museum contains lots of artifacs from different eras as well as paintings and art exhibition from various centuries by various artists. Also there is a museum of natural history which contains various fossil from millions of years ago along with a fully assembled sauropod dinosaur which is a delight to watch. A must visit for everyone.

  • The temple is basically built using the white marble, which is one of the main reasons if attraction. The neatness maintained is what you would like first of all. If you are visiting the city for the first time... Then don't miss out to visit this place. I'm sure you will have a great experience. The view of temple will be awesome in evening with the lighting
