Birla Mandir, Delhi

326

Birla Mandir at Delhi is also renowned by the name Laxmi Narayan Mandir. A major tourist attraction at the metro, it was built by industrialist G D Birla, completed in the year 1939 and was inaugurated by Mahatma Gandhi.

One of Delhi's most beautiful temples, the main shrine here is dedicated to goddess Laxmi (the goddess of wealth and prosperity) and Narayana (her consort and preserver in Trimurti). Also, present around this main shrine are small temples dedicated to Lord Krishna, Shiva, Ganesh, Hanuman and Buddha.

There is a temple dedicated to Goddess Durga – the goddess of Shakti (power) too. Built in the Nagara style of Hindu temple architecture, it was constructed under the guidance of a person named Pandit Vishwanath Shastri and Mahatma Gandhi agreed to inaugurate the shrine after its completion, on condition that people of all religions and castes would be allowed inside the temple.

Spread across an area of 7.5 acres, the temple complex is beautifully landscaped with alluring green gardens and fountains and attracts thousands of pilgrims towards it every year, mostly during famous Hindu festivals like Diwali and Janmashtami. Located on Mandir Marg close by Connaught Place, the temple is easily accessible by all modes of transportation and remains open between 6 am and 10 pm on all seven days a week.
