It's a Hindu temple built by industrialist Birla family in 1996, on Asutosh Chowdhury Avenue (Right side from Park Circus crossing to Gariahata crossing) opposite to Ballygunge Post office. The white marble structure with engraving from Bhagavad Gita, houses idols of Krishna, Radha, Shiva and Durga. Many religious ceremonies are held here. It's a place of interest in Kolkata.
