The Mandir inside is good, clean, beautiful idols and nice building architecture. Offers good view of city and Hussainsagar. However, approach road is too narrow, after certain crowd, own vehicle may not be allowed due to traffic congestion, the elevator (lift) is only one and sometimes not available. Hence senior citizens may not be able to see the mandir.

Visited at dusk and enjoyed a great view of the city, the lake and buddha. Really interesting to view a modern Hindu temple and the white marble is really stunning. Note that you cannot take your camera or phone into the temple, so unfortunately, you'll have to commit the great views to memory (you can take pictures of the exterior... More

Birla Mandir in Hyderabad, dedicated to Lord Venkateshwara of Tirumala Tirupati Temple, stands magnificently, drawing admiring glances from every passerby. The architectural style of the temple is a blend of North Indian and South Indian. The flagstaff of the Birla Mandir which has a height of 42 feet is made of brass. This temple in Hyderabad has no bells (strange no --- search in... More
