Beautifull grand temple and lovely campus. Kids can also enjoy the rides. Plan a 4-hr visit and have a looks at all exhibits. The USP is the Water Show on the story of Nachiketa. World Class and makes us feel proud !!

It is not to boast about architecture wise. Only it derived attraction from the Swami Narayan religion and it is the best bet for disciples of Swami Narayan sect. Situated in one of the most crowded locality of Ahmedabad.

The architecture is overwhelming and the pink sandstone carvings and construction belie the fact that craftmanship and artisan traditions are alive and well...impressive in its scale and reach and the blend of modern audio-visual aids with traditional architecture is visionary

This place is built around 200 years ago, by the Lord Swaminarayan Him self, and it was his first Temple, so it has significance.
