    Birla Mandir - Radha Krishna Mandir

    A beautiful structure honouring Lord Krishna and Goddess Radha can be found decorating the streets of Ballygunge that combines elements of traditional and contemporary design



    Why to visit this place

    The majestic Birla Temple in Kolkata was constructed in the 20th century in the style of Rajasthani architecture and is made of white marble and cream-colored sandstone. The Hindu deity Lord Krishna and his spouse Radha are worshipped in the temple.
    The temple's design blends modern and contemporary elements and is reminiscent of the Lingaraj Temple at Bhubhaneshwar. The temple also has shrines to Shiva, Durga, and Shakti, among other deities. Godesses Durga and Shakti are housed in the left side dome of the temple, while Lord Shiva is meditating in the right side dome.
    The Birla Temple in Kolkata took 26 long years to complete after construction started in 1970. The prestigious and well-known Indian business family known as the "Birla Family" constructed the temple.
    The GD Birla Sabaghar, a state-of-the-art auditorium next to the temple complex, regularly holds musical events and other acts.
