Birla Mandir

birla-mandir.jpg

The modern enchanting temple dedicated to Lord Venkateswara, the Birla Mandir stands in all its grandeur on the hilltop of Kalapahad. Made of pure white marble from Rajasthan, the Birla Mandir overlooks the serene and placid waters of the Hussain Sagar lake. The granite image of the presiding deity Venkateswara which is about 11-feet tall is a replica of the one at Tirupati. The consorts of the lord, 'Padmavati' and 'Andal' are housed in separate shrines in the temple. Exotic scenes from the great epics of Ramayana and Mahabharata are finely sculpted in marble..

Birla Mandir is a wonderful blend of North and South Indian temple architecture. The tower over the main shrine is built in the Orissan style, while the towers over the shrines of the consorts and the sanctum sanctorum are built in the South Indian style. The brass flagstaff of the temple reaches to a staggering height of 42 feet. There is also a temple dedicated to Buddha in this complex with fresco paintings describing his life and work. The Birla Mandir presents a spectacular sight when illuminated at night. The temple is open from 7 a.m. to 12 noon and 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. all days of the week.
