This is must visit for travelers. Visit around 3 pm and don't miss the laser show from 7pm. Best laser show I have seen in India.

The Temple is awesome. The "Water Show" is an out of the world experience. It a challenge to the Dancing Fountain of Vegas & Dubai. I think it is much better choreographed, with a storyline thrown in.

If you are missing Ahmadabad, then visit to this temple is must. Very beautifully crafted, this is famous for its architecture and carvings. Peaceful, serene. You should not miss the sound and light show, which is a combination of lazer show, lights, fireworks along with humans performing; this is a very amazing show and you wont regret if you waited...

This is a marvellous place. Cool , quiet and aesthetically made. The gardens were refreshing and well maintained. The architecture and carvings in sand stones are worth mentioning. Do not miss the Laser show. Kids too will love it.

I've already been to Akshardham Temple in Delhi before. When I was there I felt this was the best place in India! Then I heard original place was not there, it's in Ahmedabad. So I visited but didn't make me surprised. It's about one-tenth scale of Delhi's unfortunately.

Even though I'm not a religious person, the water show in the evening at the temple complex is a mind-blowing one. The only drawback if any, is that the audio is in Hindi. The food at Premvati is well priced. But pretty spicy. Don't miss this show in your Gujarat trips.

The temple is great. Don't forget to get a group snap shot at the entrance! The story exhibition at basement is beautiful. Worth a visit.

Do visit in the evening. You are not allowed to carry bags or mobile phones inside the temple. There are few rides at the amusement park which is fun for the kids. The temple dosent feel much like a "temple". More like a tourist spot. The sound and light show at 7.30 and two shows on weekends is good. Laser... More
