The Birla Temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu and Goddess Laxmi is yet another major attraction in the Pink city of Jaipur. The temple is situated at the foot of Moti Dungri Fort and is built by the famous and affluent business family of Birlas. The Birlas have built many other temples across the country. The land on which the temple stands was given to the Birla family by a Maharaja on a token sum of just one rupee.

Knowledgeable and English speaking guides are available to take the tourists around and explain to them the various aspect of the temple architecture as well as Hinduism.
