Birla Temple Hyderabad

Industrialists Birlas have built a number of temples of architectural magnificence all over the country which, strangely, are referred to as Birla temples and not Lakshminarayan temple or Venkateswara temple. A quarter century ago, they built a temple in Hyderabad entirely in marble brought from Rajasthan and dedicated it to Lord Venkateswara, known as Balaji in the north.It is believed that it took 2000 tonnes of white marbles brought from the Indian state of Rajasthan to complete this holy place.

The temple, built on a hillock called Kala Pahad, one of the Naubat Pahad twins, lords over its equally celebrated surroundings comprising the imposing Secretariat buildings, the azure-blue waters of  Hussain Sagar, the serene and halcyon Lumbini Park, the luxurious Public Gardens dominated by the Asafjahi-style Legislative Assembly complex and the Reserve Bank of India. From the highest level of the temple, the spectacle around is breath-taking, providing a view of the verdure of the city, the incessant flow of traffic on the Tank Bund, crowds thronging the administrative complexes of the government, the newly-built flyovers and the cultural hub of the city Ravindra Bharathi and the NTR Memorial is one of the travel destinations hyderabad.

The Birla Planetarium and Birla Science Museum is adjacent to the Birla Mandir Temple. Exhibits at the Science Museum include science through the ages and some archeological displays. One of the wings features The Dinosorium with fossils and a mounted 160 million year old "Kotasaurus Yamanpalliensis" of the wings features The Dinosorium with fossils and a mounted 160 million year old "Kotasaurus Yamanpalliensis".
