Open to one and all, the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir was inaugurated in August of 2007 after only 17 months of construction time utilizing 1.3 Million volunteer hours. The Mandir is comprised of 3 types of stone (Turkish Limestone, Italian marble, and Indian pink sandstone). More than 34,000 individual pieces were carved by hand in India, shipped to the USA and assembled in Lilburn like a giant 3-D puzzle.

This free tour was worth every minute. Our guide was a business man member that conducts these tours on the weekends. You could tell you how much he loved this place. Although there was no picture taking inside just the story of how the Mandir was built has stayed with me. No structural steele and assembled like a lego set.

Although I work just a few miles down the street from this beautiful building, we had not taken the opportunity to tour it. It is absolutely stunning, quite unlike our western cultural norms, which I think is precisely part of its appeal. Other reviewers have talked about its unusual, by our standards, construction (pre-formed pieces fitted together) and about its... More

This temple features an amazing Diwali Fireworks show and brings in several important figures to warm up the crowd including congressmen and Indian ambassadors. The fireworks show has great music and synchronizes the multicolored lights illuminating the mandir with the music and fantastic fireworks. I would definitely come back next Diwali, but make sure to arrive early to get parking... More

It is an Indian temple built out of marble and sandstone. The interiors are breathtaking. The volunteers are friendly and eager to assist. We also ate a meal at their cafeteria next door which was clean and inexpensive. The food was great. It is certainly a location to visit to marvel at the architecture.
