Built in 1938 by wealthy entrepreneur and philanthropist BD Birla, the temple was inaugurated in 1939 by Mahatma Gandhi under the condition that people of all faiths and castes be allowed to enter.

It’s particularly worthwhile in the morning and evening hours, when devotees come for aarti, a traditional Hindu ritual.
