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. « less

This place is simply unbelievable. From the moment you drive up you feel like you are no longer in Georgia. The stunning exterior architecture and sheer size of the building and beautiful grounds can't compare to what awaits inside. A wonderful cultural, religious learning experience and a feast for the senses. The interior is inexplicable. This is a must see.... More

A colleague and I had some time on our hands upon arrival at our hotel in Duluth. I used my handy-dandy Trip Advisor app to see what was nearby. BAPS looked intriguing so off we went. If you can't pony up the funds for a trip to India, this could be your best bet. Nestled in the land of strip... More

When in Atlanta we we visit to the Mandir. Entrance is free of charge, ample parking and wheelchairs are available. A (gift) shop is on site. Each time the BAPS staff has been welcoming, including being invited to attend services. BAPS maintains a website with specific information and guidelines. Helpful to read prior to visit. The place is stunningly looking... More

This was the first temple I visited in all my visits to USA. I found the temple so well maintained ,efficient devotee management, clean premises and spiritually vibrant.The marble carvings all around are worth a deep look. The well maintained gardens and water bodies are a sight to admire as one leaves the temple. Ample parking and a well managed... More

With an exterior of Turkish limestone and an interior of Italian marble, this building is a masterpiece of hundreds of artisans' work. The tour guides were knowledgeable, friendly, and eager to help. The structure itself is simply stunning. I've lived in Atlanta for years and had no idea something so special was here--definitely check this out!

We went there during weekday around noon so it was quiet. Couldn't see all the statues. Females in our party were sleeveless so they had to cover up. So ladies don't go there with sleeveless or skirts or they will make you cover up. Restaurant part was great and parking was easy access.

BAPS swaminarayan, Atlanta is stunningly beautiful huge Temple made up of white marble. The experience was serene. The temple campus is well maintained with lots of trees, flowers and greenery that adds to the beauty of the temple. All the idols are perfectly carved. There is restaurant named "Shayona" which serves delicious vegetarian food.

I have come to this Mandir several times, and most recently took an architect friend to see it. Needless to say he was astonished to see something like this! Words can not express the beauty of this temple, and inside is more beautiful than out if you can imagine. The entrance has shifted and in a way to move traffic,... More
