This temple is so beautiful and huge. You have amazing carvings all over the structure. It is also where the Heritage Walk of Ahmedabad starts from. It is very peaceful and not very crowded also. Parking is available.

Perhaps the oldest temple started by Shree swaminarayan from where it spread over not only across Gujarat but even to international locations. Simply majestic & grand. Situated in a crowded old city kalupur area is must visit to get the divine blessings.

Our visit was short, and so much to see and experience. I do not remember what prasad was served, or if any was served whilst we were there.

We visited in the afternoon. After which, we went for the laser show in the evening- a must for the visit. I have forgotten the time, but it is open throughout the day.
