Worth visit one evening

The temple is on a little height, which gives it a very beautiful look. You can also see the entire old Bhopal from the garden area of the temple. Best time to visit is evening. Outside pictures are allowed. The place is worth for some nice shots.

The Pink Temple of my Lord

The Lakshmi Narayan Temple is of Lord Vishnu and Lakshmi. A very clean and maintained temple. A big garden surrounds the place with few small temples. A small museum. The walls inside the temples depict pictures of Chanakya and Chandragupta and their teachings. Overall good place to be in the evening to give a soothing touch to your heart, you can take good photographs as views behind are good.

Lovely temple on a hillock

This temple has a great appearance, and is very well maintained. Obviously a lot of care has gone into setting it up. A popular temple in the city, it gets very crowded on certain days.

Hilltop temple, very attractive

Although the design and architecture of Birla Mandir at various places is almost common, yet the location of this temple is appealing and attracts people to come to this place. This temple is at the Hilltop in Bhopal from where an eye view of old and new Bhopal can be watched. This place gives enough peace and is enjoyable with entire family. There is huge crowd here during festive days.

Beautiful Location

This temple is located in a hill so you can get a view of the entire city of Bhopal from here. Temple is very beautifully built from architectural point of view. The premises are very clean and well maintained. Entire flooring is done using white marble. In front of the main gate there is huge 'Shank' followed by row of fountains increasing the visual appeal of this place.
