Laxmi Narayan Temple, New Delhi
Laxmi Naryan temple a.k.a Birla Temple in New Delhi was built by the Birlas, a noted industrialist family of India.

Built in 1938, Laxmi Naryan temple is one of the first major Hindu places of worship that allowed the lower caste Harijans inside. In fact, Mahatma Gandhi made entry of Harijans as one of the conditions for inaugurating the temple.

Sris Chandra Chatterjee designed the temple, which is built in Orissa style sanctuaries and Mughal arcades.

The main shrine of the temple is dedicated to Lord Narayan and Goddess Lakshmi. There are other small shrines dedicated to Lord Shiva, Lord Ganesha, Lord Hanuman and Lord Buddha. Krishna Janmashtami and Deepawali are the two major festivals that attract huge crowds to the temple.

The temple is located on Mandir Marg, west of Connaught Place.
