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 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

There are only a handful of Mandirs of this scale outside of India. Very interesting inside and out. The architecture is unique in this part of the world. I went with a large group so we were able to get a tour with a guide who attends this Mandir. If you can get someone to help interpret what you are... More

There are but three of these magnificent Mandir specimens in the entire United States: Houston, Texas, Chicago, Illinois, and Lilburn, Georgia. Their mission: to promote harmony between individuals, within families, and within diverse communities. Admission is free, parking plentiful. Audio tours (recommended) are available for a nominal fee, by signing up in the gift shop. Wear shoes that are easy... More

Regardless of your religious background, this is a fascinating place. They do a very nice job of welcoming tourists and showing them around, explaining the Hindu sect that the temple represents. The marble work is amazing. Definitely worth a visit.
