Laxmi Narain Temple, Delhi
The Laxmi Narayan Mandir (temple) built by B.D. Birla is a modern Hindu temple dedicated to Laxmi (goddess of wealth) and Narayana (the preserver). It was inaugurated by Gandhi with the stipulation that it should be open to all castes (including the untouchables) and all faiths, so it is more welcoming to foreigners than the average temple.
Laxmi Narain Temple, Delhi
After visiting so many ancient Hindu temples, it was fun to see a modern functioning one.
