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.

  • Travellers must visit place. Parking lot for two wheelers and four wheelers. Hindu temple with huge crowd. Great view of Hyderabad. Rest rooms also available but need to maintain well. Having one way roads, please be careful there, follow the sign boards to reach temple top parking area. You need to enter into a small road, and take right side pavement a very small lane, be alert there if not you will go wrong.

  • Absolutely peaceful place. Its nice in the mornings during weekdays The view from up there is beautiful. Its even more beautiful in the night with an awesome view of hyderabad traffic. No phones/cameras are allowed inside the temple. Got good parking. The way to come up to the temple is so sloppy. Got to be careful.

  • Very good place art, science,holy,spiritual and lot more. We have wider parking. Morning visit is awesome . Fresh air and cool breeze is mind blowing. Visiting this place once will certainly make some improvements to health and mind. Please spend at least an hour a month and have a please life. Thanks for reading

  • A very good place to visit and pray - soothing and pleasant, scenic place - the priests could be more humane and proactive rather than being mechanical. The lift is a good service for elders. Do not buy any toys at the 'Bengal Stores' there - all Chinese stuff and defective and highly priced. The small canteen is good but the person should be user friendly not think that he is doing us a favour. Finally the toilets need to be repaired and maintained.
