Birla Temple, Kolkata Reviews

  • Very very clean! The exquisite stone work makes it a landmark. I remember this was under construction for a long time. And its worth! Only obstacle could be you might come for a visit and find the temple is closed. Their visiting hours are very less. Otherwise, its really worth spending some time here just by sitting with closed eyes in any of the squeakily clean corners!

  • Birla temple was built by famous Indian Industrialist Birla in 1970 but it was completed in 1996. Amazing architecture with blend of lime stone, marble, Belgium glass etc. Nice cleaning and maintenance of surrounding, very good arrangement for visitors. Photography is not allowed inside Mandir.A must visit for a quiet and spiritual experience.

  • What a magnificent temple it is!! The temple is on the main road itself but you will be at peace once you step inside!!! Beautiful architecture and very well maintained!! Though you are not allowed to click photos inside!!

  • Picturesque temple. Easily accessible through public transport. Beautifully decorated during Janmashtami. A must visit.

  • Nice place.. temple made of fully marble. And its design and architecture are great. Like it. Want to go with my family again
