Each Temple built by the Birla family is unique and this one in Kolkata was as special as the rest I have seen across India. This one is perhaps a bit smaller but one gets a very peaceful feeling whilst inside.
Strongly urge travellers to Kolkata to pay a visit

Large marble temple. Very clean, quiet, nice feel.
There is a row of secondary shrines on the side - the 10 incarnations.

Though I stay in Kolkata, it was my first visit to Birla Mandir on the auspicious day of 'Dhanteras' I went around 7:45pm and no other devotees to be seen around. I had the pleasure to be blessed alone ☺️.

Temple is just beautiful. The main entrance leads to lord Krishna and Radha Rani. To the left is Bhole Baba and to the right is Maa Durga. Lord Ganesha and Hanuman ji is also there in the temple.

I would highly recommend this temple anyone who is visiting Kolkata, must visit this temple.

Since photography is not allowed I was unable to take pics.

Birla Mandir, stunning structure which adorns the streets of Kolkata is dedicated to Lord Krishna and Goddess Radha. An imposing structure amalgamating traditional architecture with modern reflections, the temple is the perfect specimen of craftsmanship and engineering genius. Constructed in stages over a period of 26 years with unique patterns on domes & walls ..
Although the chief deities of the temple are Krishna and Radha, other Gods revered here are Lord Ganesha, Lord Hanuman, Lord Shiva, ten avatars of Lord Vishnu and Goddess Durga.
The magnificent structure of the Birla Temple is hard to miss once you reach its vicinity. Towering domes covered in intricate stonework and design adorn the main facade of the temple, while the complex itself is a pearl white marble marvel. In addition to these, some artefacts in the temple are made up of silver and Belgian glass .
As the dusk approaches, the beautiful Birla Mandir sight adorns with electric diyas and gleaming chandeliers. The continuous chanting and soft devotional music only add to its spiritual charm & divinity.

The Birla temple in Kolkata is a beautiful modern temple laid out very spaciously and maintained very well. We had been here in the evening and had a very good darshan of Lord Krishna.

This temple is close to Kalighat. This is not a very unique,but you will find peace here. This has a big ground and lot of space to wander unlike kalighat.

The temple is made up of modern marble which is great to look and visit. The best timing to visit is in the morning hours.
