Birla Temple, Kolkata Reviews

  • Beautiful Mandir located near Ballygunge Phari. The architecture is really breath taking. The fine arts makes this temple very classy and elegant. You are not allowed to carry any bag....(side bags/bag packs) etc with you inside the temple. Also you need to open shoes and submit it in the counter.

  • Temple is good.. but the priests will scold you if you donate small.. And also there is no facilities available for keeping your bag or other valuables. I saw some foreigners are waiting outside the temple as they are carrying bags. Please look into the matter as it is affecting our Country's reputation too.

  • Beautiful temple with intricate stone carving, peaceful environment, cool ambience make the devotional atmosphere great. Deity of RadhaKrishna is awesome. A devotional fragrance is prevalent throughout the entire temple premises. Maintenance of the temple praiseworthy. Located in the heart of the city. A must not to omit a visiting place in Kolkata. Devotee management is also good. Night atmosphere is amazing with lights glowing all around.

  • Overall is a good place to visit. Since it is a temple, cleanliness is given. But the worst part is I was carrying a Rucksack and other bag. They didn't allow me even on the door to let into the temple. Neither they had any provisions for travelers like us. Really sad. Such huge infra, but still such poor management.

  • It's a beautiful place where you can always go and relax and have a pleasant time.... You are not allowed to carry anything with you.. Not even the Prasad that you take for the God.. Even those things are not allowed. It's near to the Quest mall, Ballygunge
