The Laxmi Narayan Mandir on Mandir Marg is one of the most famous temples of <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comffice:smarttags" /><st1:City w:st="on"><st1lace w:st="on">Delhi</st1lace></st1:City>. The iconic yellow and red structure is one of the most recognized symbols of <st1lace w:st="on"><st1:City w:st="on">New Delhi</st1:City></st1lace>. It was inaugurated by Mahatma Gandhi himself way back in 1939.Since the mandir was built by the Birlas, many old time Delhites refer to it as Birla Mandir. The presiding diety is Lord Vishnu. The temple is so popular that there are long queues on almost every festival especially Janmashtami. A few years back, when I last visited the Birla Mandir it was evening time. A petite girl was singing a bhajan to Lord Vishnu in a sweet melodious voice. I would like other ILites to write in with their experience of the temple.
