Most tourists love to visit the famous temples of any city they are visiting and tourists travelling to Jaipur make it a point to visit the Birla Mandir. A symbol of tranquility in pristine white, Birla Mandir stands majestically with the backdrop of a hilly landscape.

Birla temple is a landmark for the city and sees a large number of tourists and devotees every day. It is also known as the Laxmi Narayan temple and is the sanctum sanctorum of Lord Vishnu and Goddess Lakshmi.

History of Birla temple

The temple celebrates the cultural and religious diversity of India so you will find figures of several saints from other religions, historians, and philosophers existing side by side with those from the Hindu religion. The teachings of Buddha, the work of legendary teachers like Socrates and Confucius are a great sight to look at. The temple is a mélange of all the philosophies and religious teachings passed down to mankind since ages.

Three domes in the temple which represent the different religions in India stand out prominently in the structure of this temple. These domes are also a symbol of secularism prevalent in India. The entrance to the temple is adorned by an image of Lord Ganesha, who is worshipped foremost in all Hindu religious festivals and proceedings.

The white marble of the temple is inlaid with a golden color and it gives the façade a magnificent look.

Inside the main temple building of Birla Mandir, there are two exquisite standing idols of Lord Vishnu and Goddess Lakshmi, with the auspicious Hindu symbol Om on the wall at the back. These statues are a work of art and are adorned with gorgeous dresses and ornaments.

In front of the idols, a railing of marble has been made to keep the devotees at a distance and to create space for the priest to offer the prayers. There are painted stained glass windows on both sides which look breathtaking beautifully when sunlight passes through them.

The ceiling of the temple displays intricate craftsmanship and people often sit on the floor to observe its beauty. Doors to the temple are embellished with carvings in gold which look strikingly beautiful . The main entrance to the temple is flanked by marble pillars with splendid engravings and an arch with intricate jaali work design.
