(4.3/5 based on 130 reviews on the web)
Admire a motley of South Indian-style carvings at Malai Mandir, New Delhi, a temple complex dedicated to the Hindu god of war. Worshipped mainly by New Delhi’s South Indian population, the complex features a multi-tiered Dravidian-style gateway tower with countless colorful carvings as well as elaborately carved sandstone buildings. Take a stroll and enjoy the colorful images. You can rest in the clean, well-maintained peaceful gardens with peacocks and friendly cats and find some serenity away from the city bustle. The temple is very active, organizing a soup kitchen which feeds a thousand people per day. Arrange to visit Malai Mandir, New Delhi and other attractions in New Delhi using our New Delhi family vacation planner.
