If any tourist, irresepctive of his religion or creed, has half a day to spare, this is a must see. It is one man's creation in five years totally with voluntary support. A monument which makes every indian proud! « less

Needs an entire day for a nice visit. Temple is beautiful and has good places to eat and also has a lovely show. Do try to make it for the show.

It really is more beautiful than the Taj in my opinion. The place is absolutely incredible, so detailed inside and out. I could have spent days in there. Warning though the security is really high, you can't take in phones or cameras or bags that are considered large (my small handbag was allowed in) so don't bother bringing cameras as... More

This is a new temple built in approximately 2006 by the Swaminarayan sect. As long as you are aware of this, feel free to enjoy the quite amazing sculptures and gardens. Many Indians visit this temple as it is free and provides a quiet respite from the daily life in most Indian cities. Most westerners seemed to avoid this temple.... More

Extremely well maintained complex .Takes minimum 4 hours time to cover all.It depicts 2500 years of indian culture . You will witness the ancient traditions , culture and contributions of our great ancestors. The temple has a mixture of pink and white marble symbolizing pureness and purity. it is an breathtaking architectural monument worth visiting.

Akshardham should not be labelled as temple or tagged to any particular religion, rather let it be free of all the bondages and welcome everyone to get the feel of spirituality and learning. It takes 4-5 hours to complete the visit here so take your time and come. Best part is the boating here which shows a great exhibition and... More

you could reach the place by a metro train and get down at the station that goes by the name itself. There is a bit of walk from the station itself . The place is spread over a quite generous space and it was actually a treat watching it from far. The temple has a lot to experience ranging from... More

Worth seeing but can't decide whether it should get 1 star or 5 stars! Very impressive but, as many others have alluded to, it feels a little bit fake! It was built in 2005 so if you are expecting an ancient temple this is not the place for you. I visited other, less popular but working, temples and found them... More

Breathtaking temple, buildings and grounds. We spent there whole day and still didn't have enough. We visited all three attractions for a really good price but the temple access is free (barefoot). Only shame you cannot take any pictures pass security gate and there might be a long wait as well...but all worth it. All is well organized and food... More

Very well maintained temple with fountains and lawns. The sculptures and carvings inside the dome of the temple are captivating. Make sure you buy the tickets for the exhibitions. They provide an insight into ancient India and Swaminarayan philosophy. The food at the canteen near the exit is fantastic and reasonably priced. Overall, budget a good 3 hours for the... More
