Birla Temple, Kolkata (Calcutta)

A grandiose white marble structure in Kolkata's busy neighborhood, Birla Temple offers a sanctuary from the city bustle. An interesting blend of modern design and traditional stone masonry, the temple features indigenous carvings, as well as two main statues of gods dedicated to Krishna and Radha. Built by the industrialist Birla family, its construction started in 1970 and took 26 years to complete. The landmark temple offers a spacious, cool respite, and is well-lit at night and during festival times.

  • I went at night. Is illuminated by a very beautiful temple of marble and very clean. Take some pictures from the gate that was disappointing.

  • Situated in ballygunge near gariahat. Very decorative. Some times little queue is there . This is basically lord krishna temple made by famous business family Birla .  more »
