Owner description: 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 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.

For the life of me I can't understand why they built this beautiful building right behind a Walgreens and across from a Publix. It would be more appropriate somewhere on beautiful grounds. You have to time when you visit because if the gods are sleeping you don't get to see all of it.

I am lucky in that I drive by BAPS every Sunday on my way to church. I have visited at least three times and have marveled at the story of how it was built (no nails/wood/consumable materials). The members of the temple take excellent care of it and are very welcoming to visitors. You must remove your shoes to enter... More

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
