About Birla Mandir

Being both the Mughal and the British Indian capitals, Delhi is strongly influenced by Persian and Victorian architectural styles. The lack of majestic temples in the Delhi skyline inspired Baldeo Das Birla of the rich Birla family to build Birla Mandir in 1933. It is one of the largest Hindu temples near the Gole Market area in Central Delhi. The temple has Laxmi Narayan as the principal deity, which is Lord Vishnu (Lord Narayan) along with his consort, Goddess Laxmi. Birla Mandir Delhi has the unique distinction of being inaugurated by Mahatma Gandhi himself, wherein he inaugurated the temple on the condition that people of all castes and colour would be allowed to visit and worship in this temple. It is strongly influenced by the theme of Swadeshi Movement in its architecture. The temple also has smaller temples dedicated to Lord Shiva and Mahatma Buddha in the complex. The best places to stay near Birla Mandir Delhi are Connaught Place and Barakhamba Road. Le Meridien Delhi, Shangri La Delhi, and The Lalit Delhi are the best hotels near Birla Mandir.

Pro Tip: Take a heritage tour of Delhi and appreciate Mughal architecture through buildings like Humayun’s Tomb and the Red Fort.
