Birla Mandir is the name by which the Lakshmi Narayan Temple is more commonly known. It's a recently-built temple (from 1938) by a man called D. Birla. It's an Indu temple, too - and dedicated to Lakshmi, the Goddess of prosperity and fortune. The architecture is really stunning, but the colours in which it's painted are a bit too garish to be called pretty. Inside photography is not allowed, but the temple is splendid - the wall paintings are truly superb - and we were lucky enough to have been given a blessing and put a red mark on our forehead. it was a pleasant visit. Entrance is free.

in 1938. This beautiful temple is located in the west of Connaught Place. The temple is dedicated to the goddess of prosperity and good fortune. The temple has well grafted gardens. It is also known as the Birla Mandir.
