About Birla Temple

The foundation stone of the Birla Temple was laid in the year 1970. Finally, the temple was inaugurated on 21 February 1996 after a period of 26 years. It is also known as Laxmi Narayan Temple and was designed by an architect named Nomi Bose. The festival of Janmashtami, the birthday of Krishan Ji is celebrated with great zeal and enthusiasm at this temple. Idols of Krishna and Radha are placed in the main temple. On the left side of the temple, you will find a statue of Goddess Durga and a statue of Shiv Ji in the meditation posture on the right side of the temple. The Birla temple covers a land of 44 kathas and has a splendid architecture. It is built using white marble and appears like a replica of Lingraj Temple of Bhubaneshwar. The holy verses of Bhagavad Geeta are engraved on the stones, which depict the entire preaching of the holy book. The architecture of the temple bears a close resemblance to the Rajasthani architectural style. The temple is adorned with an exquisite lighting system which looks stunning in the evening. Thousands of devotees visit this temple during the prominent Hindu festivals and pay their obeisance to the Lord.

Historical Context: It is one of the masterpiece of British era.
