Birla Mandir

 

Birla Mandir is a popular Hindu shrine in the city of Hyderabad. The temple is dedicated to Lord Venkateshwara of Tirumala Tirupati Temple. It is believed that this larger than life temple complex was raised using over 2000 tonnes of marble which was brought here especially from Rajasthan. The temple complex sits on the top of a hill of 280 feet and catches the attention of all from a distance. The temple underlines the richness of religions residing in India and underlines the devotion of locals towards their religion. The place is perfect to delve into meditation and unwind in the lap of serenity.  

History
Birla Mandir of Hyderabad was finally opened in 1976 after a construction period of almost 10 years. Swami Ranganathananda of Ramakrishna Mission inaugurated the temple since when it is visited by thousands of pilgrims from all over the world.

Structure
The impressive architectural style of the temple flaunts a mélange of North Indian and South Indian styles of temple architecture. The temple tower or ‘Gopuram’ showcases some outstanding features of South Indian temples. The Jagadananda Vimanam on the top of the sanctum sanctorum is inspired from the Oriya style of temple architecture. To make this marvel possible, artisans worked hard for 10 long years.

The walls and ceilings of the temple complex display stories from epics of Ramayana and Mahabharata. Pilgrims worship various statues of deities from Hindu mythology displayed here.  Here you can find temples of Lord Shiva, Shakti, Ganesh, Hanuman, Brahma, Saraswati, Lakshmi and Saibaba.
Visit the temple during early morning hours to catch its scenic outlook amidst fresh breeze and serene ambience. During night time, the temple radiates thousands of lights and looks like a shining star when seen from a distance. A sunset view of the surrounding region from the temple top is to die for.
