I am on a 3 day tour to jaipur from mumbai.Very sorry to say that I had a sad experience on my visit to birla mandir jaipur.I was not allowed to enter the temple just becoz my daughter was on a wheelchair…why the birla people want to have so many temples all over when they have so many restrictions..I am ashamed of the so called high BIRLA FAMILY AND IT’S MANAGEMENT…My daughter and us are much more respected and taken care of in other countries on our travel. But my country people like birla are far behind….
