Tour packages in Delhi are deficient unless the visitors pay homage to the famous Birla Mandir in the capital. If you think that Birla Mandir is just-another-huge-temple, then see it to believe otherwise. The origin of Birla Mandir is seeped into history. It witnessed a proud resurrection of national faith and architecture with the patronage of the industrialist Birla family. Founded in 1939, Birla Mandir tried to capture the freedom movement of India during that era, through its design. The vast and sprawling garden inside the mandir complex will sweep you off your feet. Even if you are foreigner with very little inkling about Hindu spirituality, the sacredness of Birla Mandir complex may teach you a lot. Contact to the tour operators in Delhi, so that your itinerary coincides with either Janmashtami or Diwali. On those two days, Birla Mandir observes heavy footfalls and the complex become a pretty sight to behold for any entrant. Though the main temple is devoted for lord Vishnu and goddess Lakshmi, inside the premise you will get to see many shrines for deities of Lord Shiva, Lord Ganesha, Lord Buddha, goddess Durga and Shakti. Apart from the numerous shrines, the breath-taking carvings of the main temple are the finest examples of marble and Kota stones that were sourced from all over India. The 160 fit high shikhara of the main temple may induce awe in your mind, while the cascading waterfalls will make you feel compelled to spend some quiet time with yourself inside the garden.
