Very neat clean and peaceful place and spiritual place. Huge temple well maintained. Had a museum below the temple sanctum. Very unique experience for a temple visit. Must visit if you are at Gandhinagar.

I like the way they are managing entire traffic throughout the year. But I like the most is the water & lighting show which is around 7.00 pm and I am sure you shall enjoy it with your family. They have good space for parking, nearby food shopes and local transport too. I suggest you to visit at any weekend.

this is a temple complex maintained by the swaminarayans (BAPS). This is one of their main temples. Although this is a tourist attraction, I have not found anything 'spiritual' about this place. you cannot feel that serene, divine ambiance here. However, from a tourist point of view, this is a great place to spend an evening. The water and laser... More
