Altough functional yet work is in progress. It may take about a year to be fully completed. Grand, Peaceful and holy place.

The best place to have a peace of mind forgetting all the pressures of life. The best part of the Mandir is the Nilkanth Varni Abhishek Mandapam. Doing abhishek brings your wishes come true. Apart from this the dresses and ornaments of the Murtis are very attractive.

it shows you the artistic skills of Indian as well as foreign artists. It has a huge number of paintings by Raja ravi varma, who was an ancient artist from Kerala who showed amazing artistic skills, it is a must see. They will explain you the history behind each painting. excellent

I'm not a Swaminarayan by belief, but these folks do keep their temples neat and tidy... The architecture is really good too... I had a pleasant experience there. There's this calm and peace that's in the premises that, these days, is rare and difficult to find..

I could experience the perfect age old customs and rituals performed in the temple - which I could only remember from my childhood days. The saints have traditional... More
