As far as the architecture of the Birla Temple Hyderabad is concerned, it is an amalgam of a variety of architectural styles. The visitors to the temple are greeted by a ‘rajgopuram' constructed in the South Indian style.
The exquisite carvings of the temple, the ceiling and the mythological figurines are ample proofs of the dexterity of the sculptors and the craftsmen. There is a tower over the chief shrine of
Andhra Pradesh Birla Temple - Lord Venkateswara which is called the ‘Jagadanananda Vimanam' and is constructed in the quintessentially Orissan style.
Interestingly enough, the towers over the shrines of Lord Venkateswara are reminiscent of the south Indian architectural style.
The image of the presiding deity is made of granite and is 11 feet tall. A carved lotus forms an umbrella like structure over this image.
In the adjacent ‘mukhamandapam' the scenes from Indian mythology are carved in marbles. Birla Temple Hyderabad basks in a flood of light at night.
Besides the chief shrine of Lord Venkateswara, there are also separated shrines for His consorts Padmavathi and Andal within the Birla Temple Hyderabad.
Srisailam, rich with myths and legend, is one of the 12jyotirlingas in the country and only one in the state.
It is also one of the 18 Peethaas of the country because of the presences of Bhramaramba Devi.
There is a description in Vyasa's Skandhapurana about the Temple in Srisailam.
In Skandhapurana it is mentioned that Lord Shiva described the beauty and grandeur of the place to Parvati.
Srisailam owed its name from the name of the lady Sri Devata. Its earlier name was Manthraparvata.
A lady called Vasumati worshipped Lord Brahma on this mountain, Brahma become happy and gave her a boon and her name was changed into Sri Devata.
After this event the name was changed into Srisailam. It is believed that Rama rounded this temple to get rid of the Brahmahatya
