Birla Temple is in the heart of the city. Architecture is great and fully marble temple. Very peaceful. One can spend around half an hour in the evening here.

We visited this temple few months ago. And we were left mesmerized to see the beautiful architecture of the huge temple complex in white marble. The temple compound is very serene and peaceful.

Viral Temple is likely one of my most favorite temples I’ve ever visited. It is simple in layout, ornate in construction, and just gorgeous in general. Take photos from the stairwell or around the wall, but photography/cell phones are strictly prohibited. Must see.

A lot of marble used here and obviously a lot of money spent on it that nevertheless does not excel in any manner the older and more modest temples.

Magnificent Architecture, such tranquil and peaceful environment. Just look at the temple, look at the deity and emerge within your self to bring out that spiritual person within you. No parking, belonging can be kept safe in locker.

Beautifully located on the main road. Lovely architecture and very nicely maintained temple. Very neat and the environment is very calm. Clicking pictures inside the temple is not allowed. One is asked to switch off their mobiles.
