About Birla Mandir

Jaipur, famous for its forts, palaces, monuments and heritage history, houses one of the finest temples in the country. The temple was constructed with white marble and seems to be enveloped in serenity by the Birlas in 1988, who are responsible for constructing many other famous temples in India. The temple is an abode to Lord Vishnu and Goddess Lakshmi. For this reason, the temple was formerly known as Lakshmi Narayan Temple.

The land on which the temple was built was given by the Maharaja to the Birla for a token amount of just one rupee.

The temple has three domes which reflect three approaches to religion. The most significant part of the temple is the stunning idol of Lakshmi Narayan, carved out from a single piece of stone. The other idol, an artist's wonder, is of Lord Ganesha.

The interiors of the temple are adorned with mythological paintings of various Hindu deities. There is a large marble console which depicts all mythological events. The outside of the temple is as beautiful as its interior with steps to the temple, which are also made out of marble. There are various sculptures and images of various deities that add a different charm to the whole place, including various pictures of great legends, philosophers and achievers like The Socrates, Christ, Buddha and Zarathustra.

The temple also houses a museum which has all ancestral belongings of the Birla family. The temple is also surrounded by lush green trees which simply add to the calm and peace of the temple. Thronged by devotees throughout the day, the temple is especially crowded during the festive season.


The famous Birla Mandir is located beneath the Moti Dungri Fort in Jaipur. The area is surrounded by greenery all over and offers serenity and peace.
