If you have already visited Akshardam at Delhi then you won't find this place amazing as that one is lot larger and beautiful but except for these two Must Watch : 1. Lord Swaminarayan articles preserved in museum in basement of temple. 2. Water & Lazer show - starts daily evening at around 7:30pm and runs for 45 mins.

Wow !! What a place to visit. Lovely temple complex. The Water show every evening is a must-must visit. I have seen it 10-11 times, taking friends & others, but havent got bored with the Laser show on Nachiketa.. A few things to note : 1) Tea and pop corn during the water show is a must 2) The food...

Then you go over to seethe temple in the middle. Walk around he outside to see all the elephant carvings and sayings. Then go into the temple (no shoes allowed).... More
