  • 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.

  • 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.
