This beautiful temple, which is located atop a hill, was constructed by Birlas. Birla Mandir is composed of sculpted white marble, and floats on the city skyline from the hilltop of Kala Pahad. The idol in the temple is a replica of the one at the famous Tirupati and was completed by the Birlas in 1976. The temple offers a panoramic view of the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secundrabad. Scenes from Ramayana and Mahabharata are finely sculpted in the marble. The main idol in the temple is an 11 foot tall statue of Lord Venkateswara which is sculpted from black granite, specially mined and brought from Phirangipuram in Guntur district.

Birla Mandir on the Naubath Pahad is a magnificent Hindu temple of Lord Venkateshwara, entirely built in white marble located in Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, India .

The Birla Foundation has constructed several similar temples in India, all of which are known as Birla Mandir.

The temple manifests a blend of South Indian, Rajasthani and Utkala temple architectures. In its entirety, it is made of 2000 tons of pure Rajasthani white marble.

The granite of the presiding deity is about 11 ft (3.4 m). tall and a carved lotus forms an umbrella on the roof. The consorts of Lord Venkateswara, Padmavati and Andal are housed in separate shrines. There is a brass flagstaff in the temple premises which rises to a height of 42 ft (13 m).


Birla mandir temple is built on a 280 feet (85 m) high hillock called the Naubath Pahad on a 13 acres (53,000 m2) plot. The construction took 10 years and was consecrated in 1976 by Swami Ranganathananda of Ramakrishna Mission. The temple does not have traditional bells, as Swamiji wished that the temple atmosphere should be conducive for meditation.
