Birla Mandir


"Marble Temple"

As you enter the southern neighborhood of Ballygunge, the Birla Mandir is bound to catch your attention. Designed to emulate the Lingaraj Temple in Orissa, this white marble structure houses idols of many Hindu deities: statues of Krishna and Radha, Durga, Shiva, Ganesha and a few others can be found at different parts of the temple. Just like the Birla Mandir in Jaipur and Hyderabad, the interiors are a pristine white and the sense of space is a relaxing contrast to the claustrophobic atmosphere that is common to most Indian temples. By night, the entire mandir is illuminated which enhances its beauty considerably. In close vicinity are the Birla Museum of Science and Technology, Calcutta Ice Skating Rink and CCFC.
