The best thing about this temple is that it is maintained very well, unlike most of the temples in our country. The temple is quite clean…we spend good amount of time sitting in its felt good to sit there after performing is a clean place and has amazing view of Hussain Sagar Lake and the city.

"Take your camera with you!" -
Rating: 4 stars
I had heard good reviews about birla mandir so had just gone there without much preparation. After reaching there I regretted the fact that I left my camera at home. Although management will not allow taking picture in the temple premises you can take pictures around. If you love taking picture like me then you would love this place. It is located on top of a hill so the view from there is also quite amazing. You should check out the birla mandir photos and you will know how beautiful this place is.

"Good place to go..nice driving experience in morning" -
Rating: 5 stars
It was a nice experience. We went on weekend...weekend usually its crowded but we luckily went at the right time. Birla mandir Hyderabad timings are from 7:00 am – 12:00 pm and then 3:00 pm – 9:00 pm..afternoon it is closed like other temples. We went early in morning and it was a nice drive till there. Temple is very beautiful and even the view from top is captivating.

"Was disappointed" -
Rating: 3 stars
I didn’t find Birla mandir Hyderabad as clean as it is usually mentioned. It is shown in so many Tollywood movies so I had gone there to see it live. When we went even the Birla mandir route was deserted. We felt quite lonely to even walk till there. There is parking space near temple which is good. But this temple is like any other temple with marble, may be good for religious visits.Nothing special.

"Looks awesome" -
Rating: 5 stars
Birla temple Hyderabad is beautifully designed with white marbles. The entire mandir and surrounding area is very pleasing. For darshan on weekends it is usually crowded but we went on weekday so had an easy darshan too..the birla mandir timings for darshan are from 7 am to 12 pm. After that it opens again in evening from 3 pm to 9 pm.

"Go in evening for a perfect view" -
Rating: 5 stars
Birla mandir Hyderabad is not just a place just for poojas, this place is quite beautiful to simply go and enjoy the view. Sunset is mesmerising from there! The temple itself looks so beautiful in the sunlight when even its lamps are lighted, amazing view! Hussain Sagar especially looks breath taking from there.
