“Interesting for Hindus”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2014

If you are not a Hindu, the place is just boring.
Nice building, but it's not allowed to take pictures from the inside, and you must leave your camera, mobile and shoes in a room, especially designed for foreigners, where the guard asks for a tip.
Not that much to see, and not interesting at all.

“Another Temple”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014

Visited this temple before visiting the Gurudwara - here people were prepared to make money with whatever they could example - asking to pay for leaving the shoes outside the temple which I found to be a disgusting practice at a lot of places

“OK if you don't have time to get to Akshardham”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014

This is a medium-size and well-done Hindu temple in central Delhi. Previously a hallmark of our Delhi-tour for out of town guests, but recently we find much more value in taking the 10-15 drive over to Akshardham instead. The Birla Mandir is aging in the way that a VW minivan does... It has some pleasant "vintage" charm... But really isn't worth much.

“Worth a visit if you have time”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

A pleasant enough Indian Temple, some nice stone carvings in the grounds and icons inside the temple were the most exciting parts. OK to visit if you're in the area. Quite a central location.
