It is a well managed place ( as expected from swaminarayan temples). I have seen Delhi one also ( before light show was incorporated in it). Exhibition there is better especially boat one. Sound and light show is a must watch and is of international level. Pl. Note it is closed on Monday

A wonderful place for various things, be it darshan / amenities / the sound, light and water show. A must visit... Tip - Try taking the second show of sound & laser show, it would be a bit cooler & better clarity.

Temple + Rides + Laser water show + Foods = Akshardham Temple Whole package for family, you can enjoy the rides, roam arround the temple, enjoy the food (specially swaminarayan khichdi) and the best laser water show. The rides start from evening, and the laser water shoe late in evening so concern the timing before visit.

Places of Spirituality where commercial activities like food shops, souvenir shops co-exist on almost an equal scale have never fascinated me. Crowds collect to enjoy pleasure at such locations where I personally feel one should head to seek only a Divine experience. These commercial facilities should be kept completely out of the location or at a smaller scale. Hence although... More

This temple is very good for all kind of people. Elderly enjoy temple and young enjoy exhibition around. Very well managed. You should visit it in afternoon so that you enjoy light and music show during evening. It is a family day out.

It is literally a temple with a package......Beautiful gardens, awesome fountain show at the night, museum, amusement park, cafeteria and the beautiful temple with a 77 kg gold idol of lord swaminarayan.....A must visit place if you itinerary includes Ahmedabad or Gandhinagar
