At Birla Mandir Temple (Lakshmi Narayan), thousands of devotees fervently practice their religion and host Hindu festivals. Inaugurated by Mahatma Gandhi, the temple, spread over an area of 3 hectares (7.5 acres), was built between 1933 and 1939. The architecture exhibits influences of the principles of the Swadeshi (India independence) movement, also known as the Modern Indian Architecture Movement.

The temple was inaugurated by Mahatma Gandhi on the condition that people of all castes will be allowed to enter the temple. Very peaceful, neat and clean premises and no extortion by Middle Men and Pandas. the temple premises is quite good in a quiet locality. the wall paintings are truly superb. Inside photography not allowed. Best temple to Visit.
