Birla Temple, Kolkata (Calcutta)

A grandiose white marble structure in Kolkata's busy neighborhood, Birla Temple offers a sanctuary from the city bustle. An interesting blend of modern design and traditional stone masonry, the temple features indigenous carvings, as well as two main statues of gods dedicated to Krishna and Radha.
