  • 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.
