About Birla Mandir

Located towards the Hussain Sagar Lake, the gleaming structure in white marble will be etched in your memories for years, once you visited the place. The world famous Birla Mandir in Hyderabad is one of the spectacular must-visit sights in the city dotting the skyline of Hyderabad. The temple was built by the Birlas in 1976 with white marbles imported from Rajasthan. It took a decade to complete the construction but was consecrated by Swami Ranganathananda of Ramakrishna Mission in the same year. Birla Temple is dedicated to Lord Vishnu known as Sri Venkateswara. The ambiance created with the reverberation of kirtans of Annamayya, Tyagaraja, and Ramadasu creates a peaceful and pleasing environment that compels you to stay at the place longer. The temple architecture is inspired by the combination of two architectural styles, Utkal (Oriya) and South India. The main deity is 11-feet tall and is made of granite. Swami Venkateswara’s wives Padmavati and Andal are also worshiped in the adjoining shrines. You will also find a temple dedicated to Buddha along with murals based on his life. The temple also houses separate shrines for other god and goddesses such as Shiva, Ganesh, Hanuman, Saraswati, Brahma, Lakshmi and Saibaba.
