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.

This is the one of the best place to visit in Hyderabad. This temple is constructed with white marble and have peaceful environment. This temple doesn't charge anything for entrance and parking is also free. Mobile phones are strictly not allowed inside temple. Temple is neat & clean and well maintained. when you will be on top floor in temple then you can see half of the Hyderabad city and also you will see the largest indian flag floating in air on other side of lake which makes us feel proud. I will recommend all to visit this place with family.
One of the beautiful and remarkable temple of the Hyderabad. I really loved the place a lot. The architectural beauty is very authentic and innovative. The design is amazing and made in the concept of the Lords. You can’t take your mobile phone there in the main premises. You have to put it in the locker. Also you have to put of your shoes out.

Nice view of Hyderabad from the top of hill. Parking here is a fun as you got to take the vehicle to the top of hill. No mobile phone allowed, not one without camera as well. No food available at the place so better have your meals before you visit. We spent almost one hour here enjoying the top view. Closed between 12.00 to 2.00pm.
This temple is built with white marvel. It was very difficult for us even to open our eyes due to high reflection of sunlight from all around the temple walls at around 11am. So it is better to visit in the evening. The view from the top is stunning. You cannot take coconut inside the temple. The security persons will keep it before you enter the temple. And you need to keep your shoes and mobiles/cameras in lockers which is a free service. Overall the experience is good.
