Birla Lakshmi-Narayan Temple, Jaipur

The Lakshmi - Narayan Temple, also known as Birla Mandir, is a modern architectural wonder. The grand temple is located on an elevated ground at the base of Moti Dungari hill in Rajasthan. Built entirely in the finest quality white marble, the temple has some beautifully carved sculptures and idols. It is dedicated to Lord Lakshmi Narayan also known as Lord Vishnu of the Hindu trinity. The three main domes of the temple represent a very clear picture of secular India as they portray different approaches to the religions of the nation. The temple has some of the most beautifully crafted idols of Lord Ganesh and other Hindu Gods. Along with the idols of Gods, one can find statues of great thinkers and philosophers like Buddha and Socrates. Birla Mandir comes to life as a magical palace during the festival of Janmashtami, which is celebrated to mark the birth of Lord Krishna. The whole temple is decorated beautifully with flowers, and in the evening, the temple glows as it is illuminated with a thousand lights.
