  • Beautiful Temple, very well maintained. A great piece of Hindu architecture. I wish they offered a guided tour to understand all the amazing sculptures made all around the temple. From the top , there are some spectacular views of the city. They don't allow mobile phone, which I think is a big plus, it gives you time and peace of mind to get engrossed into the spiritual spirit of the place. The only sad part was the lift, which was not working, which could be a big challenge for elderly people to climb up the temple stairs.
  • Beautiful architecture atop a hill.. Magnificent view of the twin cities.. Great place to visit.. Tourist attraction.. Lord Venkateshwara Temple.. provided with ample parking lot and cloak room... And also a souvenir shop for d tourists ..
  • Birla Mandir is a Hindu temple, built on a 280 feet high. The construction took 10 years and was opened in 1976 by Swami Ranganathananda. There is a nice view from the top and the place is really silent. People can go there for relaxing and have a nice time. Note: Phones are not allowed. i guess all the electronics are not allowed in the temple.
  • Hindu temple, and best attraction for local and outside visitors. Can't carry your belongings, and also need to deposit your mobile in locker. The outside shops of Birla mandir are cheaper with quality fashion products. Good for street shopping experience.
  • Splendid and refreshing. The whole temple is made up of marble and images of gods, goddesses, their teachings have been sculpted on the marbles itself. The view from top of the temple is mesmerising. I went to this temple on a cloudy full moon day. The fresh air, 360 view and the calmness is a beautiful combination of sorts.
