Birla Temple, Kolkata Reviews

  • Birla Mandir is a peaceful place. It doesn’t take more than 10 minutes to enter and come out. Good to know: You will be asked to switch off your mobile phones while going inside. There is a separate counter to leave your footwear. We were asked to submit the umbrella which we were having in hand at the same footwear counter. Any handbags will be thoroughly checked by the security. We reached the temple around 4.20 PM and we had to wait for ten minutes for the temple to open (they re-open by 4.30 PM after closing in the noon)

  • Very good place but such strange timings. It never opens at 5am and strangely likewise never opens in the second half at 4pm. During active day hours it's closed when most of the visitors would like to come to the place. Anyways that is more for the management to think of.... Place is good and just like other Birla Mandirs

  • It is a popular tourist destination in Kolkata. I really liked the clean, well maintained temple and its premises. Apart from the religious fervour the temple exudes, it's a specimen of really wonderful architecture. To me, evening is the best time to visit the temple.

  • This temple is situated on the main side of the road. Very clean and maintained temple. Security guards are very active. You can definitely find peace here by spending time.

  • very nicely maintained temple. buddha is treated as one of the dashavatharas in this temple. very nice ambience and evening lighting is pleasing to the eye . a very good place to spend some time out with family. but no proper parking space. the road outside is very broad but parking is difficult. the adjacent street is used for parking. the meditation hall in the basement is well maintained and used for some discourses and musical concerts at times.
