This Temple made by G D Birla. Birla Mandir (Birla Temple) refers to different Hindu temples or Mandirs built by the Birla family, in different cities. All these temples are magnificently built in white marble. Construction is continuously going on at some location. The family believes that if they stop the construction of temples, it will bring bad fate. This is the reason why some of the temples are not 100% finished, and construction is on-going, albeit at a slow pace.
