Birla Mandir Hyderabad
Birla Mandir is a Hindu temple in Hyderabad, Telangana, India. The consorts of Lord Venkateshwara, Padmavati, and Andal are housed in separate shrines from the main shrine. Separate shrines are also available for Shiva, Shakti, Ganesh, Hanuman, Brahma, Saraswati, and Lakshmi, among others. Men’s and Gurbani teachings are engraved on temple walls, so they were chosen. Birla temples, as identified by Mahatma Gandhi and other Hindu leaders, are open to all.
Birla Mandir Hyderabad History
The Birla Mandir Hyderabad Temple was built on a 280-foot-high hillock called Naubat Pahad on a 13-acre (53,000-square-metre) plot. Swami Ranganathananda of Ramakrishna Mission dedicated the temple in 1976 after a ten-year construction period. The temple was built by the Birla Foundation, which has also built several similar temples across India, all of which are known as Birla Mandir.
Birla Mandir Hyderabad Architecture:
The temple’s architecture is a fusion of Dravidian, Rajasthani, and Utkala styles. It’s made of 2000 tonnes of pure white marble. The granite idol of the presiding deity Lord Venkateswara stands approximately 11 feet (3.4 metres) tall, with a carved lotus forming an umbrella on top. Within the temple grounds, there is a 42-foot-tall brass flagstaff (13 m). The temple lacks traditional bells because Swami Ranganathananda desired that the temple atmosphere be conducive to meditation.
