LAKSHMI NARAYAN MANDIR

 Built in 1938 by the industrialist BD Birla, this was one of the earliest Indian temples without caste restrictions, and Mahatma Gandhi attended its first puja. A fairly typical example of modern Indian temple architecture, with its marble entrance and ochre and maroon shikharas (spires), the Birla Mandir, as it is popularly known, has images of Vishnu and his consort Lakshmi in its main shrine. Subsidiary shrines let around the courtyard, are inscribed with verses from sacred Hindu texts and are decorated with paintings depicting scenes from the Mahabbarata and Ramadana.
