Delhi - Lakshmi Narayana Mandir

Delhi, the proud capital of the world's largest democracy has scores and scores of largely visited and much-hallowed temples of both ancient and modern declaring its exemplary religious tolerance and spiritual harmony. Every religion and each cult has its own places of worship and are carrying their devotional activities round the year uninterruptedly, declaring the land's Sanathana Dharma that neither knows religious bigotry, nor allows its domination on anyone's life. All religions are accorded equal treatment by the Government, mirroring its ennobling, exemplary secular character, bending the heads of humanity sans division or difference.

Among the recently built Hindu shrines, the Lakshmi Narayan Mandir, the crest-jewel of Hinduism deserves first mention. Built about a half century back by Saith Raja Baldeodas Birla, it has been luring a steady stream of adorers everyday and round the year. It is a stately built spacious temple with many mandirs and minishrines. The milk white marble walls are adorned with excellent carvings of adorable gods and goddesses. Its imposing high towers with fluttering flags are conspicuous landmarks visible for miles afar. In the elegantly built mandir, there are installed on a high vedika the masterly sculptured marble icons of Mahavishnu and Lakshmi in standing posture that raise hands in veneration, the very moment they gleam into the sight of viewers. The supreme artistry of the sculptors deserve appreciation. This m flanked by two more similar mandirs  one enshrining Lord Siva's image in dhyana pose and the other Goddess Durga's image, sitting astride her mount. They are majestic and soul-lifting. Behind this, there is another imposing Krishna Mandir meriting indispensable visitation. Just behind this temple complex, there is a beautiful big garden called Indraprastha Dharmavatika embodying several interesting and artistically made mandirs affording feast to the eyes. Visitors can spend hours and hours enjoying the most worth-seeing sights in and around the campus. Modernity coupled with divinity exuding from every frame of this holy shrine involuntarily bends the visitors' heads in obeisance to the adorable gods, and sure their homage goes to the builder too for presenting to the theist world this imposing inexhaustible spiritual treasure to be kept in their minds locked up to be cherished for ever. No thiest visiting Delhi, ever goes back without visiting this modern Vishnu dham of ineffable charm.

It is in the heart of Delhi, the capital of Indian union, accessible by city bus or four wheelers from any point.
