  • This temple is filled with a very calm energy. We attended an aarti and puja one evening with local people. This was a very special experience and we felt welcomed. The art work here is some of the ni...  more »
  • While this is not my faith, this is one of the few places where, while standing barefoot in the sun outside, I felt at peace. Nice architecture and nice people. 
  • Near the center of New Delhi is quite modern Hare Krishna Temple, which was built in the 1930e years, wealthy Hindus. Lakshmi Narayana represents unity ― two opposites, male and female. Narayan aka Krishna is the Supreme being, which includes all kind of some absolute God, which for creation requires energy, which, in this case, impersonates his wife Krishna Lakshmi. Be sure to take a look at this guide to puppet fairytale shrine and to every picture, fresco, skul'pturke there is a legend that guides like to tell. Interior of the temple happy eyes light in crystal chandeliers, cool white-pink marble , fantastic Hindu deities, frescoes and paintings narrating about their lives. The main characters, or rather heroine of this temple is the wife of Krishna (Narajana) Lakshmi. It's a pity that photograph did not openly allow. A lot of unusual sculptures. mandatory place to visit in New Delhi

  • Great place to be in. The Laxmi Narayan Mandir is very nicely built up and receive numerous visitors everyday. Constructed and maintained by the Aditya Birla group, they have built many temples across India and many devotees come here to offer prayers and seek peace.
  • I should not comments on the temples, because i am here as google local guide to show what is good or bad, but there is nothing baad, I only about this place is , inaugrated by mahatama gandhi, One must visit on janamashtmi
  • Laxmi Narayan Mandir is also known as Birla Mandir. it is one of Delhi's Major temples. It is also a tourist place. The temple is dedicated to Goddess of prosperity. The temple was inaugurated by Mahatma Gandhi. after-all good experience must visit.
  • Nice temple dedicated bhagwan lakshmi narayan ji..
  • In heart of National Capital, This iconic pious place with huge space can serve the society at much larger scale and in effective ways. Certainly, expectations goes high when BIRLAs are at helm.
