This is the first temple of the Swaminarayan Sampradaya. We had visited it on one of the days in Diwali .. The decoration was very unique. Very well maintained. Feels wonderful just looking at the Lord.

The entry ritual is just too much. Can't blame given the security concerns. Huge is the word and grand. If you like gardens, temple architecture you can consider. End of the day this is a temple but just too much crowd around spoils the peace.

I was really fascinated about this temple and took my family for the pooja ritual. The main negative point is the location of this place as it is located in the center of chaotic city and one cannot concentrate on the aspects of pooja and heal spiritually. But we still managed to keep our religious aesthetics intact.

This temple is a nice clean temple to visit. It was undergoing renovations when we visited. However, we were still able to pay our respects to the main deity and there is no pressure to hurry through your visit.
