Even if you are not a devotee of Radha Krishna, the Birla temple is a sanctuary of calm and peace. The Bhajans resonate positive vibrations in your ears and the hymns touch your spiritual chords. Architecturally too, the temple seems like a masterpiece made by highly skilled craftsmen. If crowds are any judge of the popularity of a temple, the Birla Temple is one of the most famous in Kolkata.

  • One of very nicely maintained temple premises. Very beautiful sculptures. Peaceful place. You can have some relaxation d chanting time over there workout much noise. Very nicely located at the major place. Connectivity is very good

  • Very well built Temple but sadly you can't take pictures in premise of Temple. You can only take pics from outside view.This temperature is no where near to Birla temple in Hyderabad. No rush. It only takes 4-5 minutes of your time. Cleanliness is excellent.

  • It's a Hindu temple very well maintained and staff there is very friendly and helpful. Place is there for keeping shoes photography is prohibited. One can sit inside the temple and spend some peaceful time there

  • I visited the temple on 17th Nov. You are not allowed to use mobile phones/cameras inside the temple. It has peaceful vibes around. A visit worth your time.

  • This is new age temple and the overall look and feel is excellent and is very well maintained and clean. Big Idols are beautifully done in white marble and the entire temple has a non polished white marble look. There were hardly any crowd and is a suitable place to sit and pray in serenity.In all the hustle and bustle of Kolkata the Birla Mandir is an amazingly serene and calm temple. What I like is that it is spotlessly clean, no water or dirt around and hence you can spend really quality time there an not get bothered by priests and pandas.
