Overview
More
The Inspired by His Holiness Pramukh Swami Maharaj, a handful of devotees began conducting weekly assemblies in the late 1970's and early 1980's. In 1984, His Holiness inaugurated the first BAPS Swaminarayan Mandir in Whittier, California, a small suburb just outside of Los Angeles. With the guidance and blessings of His Holiness, the congregation grew from just a handful of families to a strong group of dedicated devotees who yearned for spiritual growth. In 2000, His Holiness visited the current site of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Chino Hills and invigorated the congregation's desire to build a traditional Hindu Mandir. The congregation completed with Haveli building (more commonly known as the Visitors Center) in 2007. In 2012, the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Chino Hills was dedicated and opened with great joy. This Mandir is the fifth traditional Hindu Mandir in North America.

An epic eyesore, gaudy, over-wrought and a perpetual monument to just how spineless the Chino Hills City council can be. It does not fit in any architectural style within 2000 miles. It looks like it should have a huge water slide and some LEGOLand cars...More

It's worth visiting this place for it's architecture inside and outside. It's very intricate, exclusive and all of it is hand carved from Indian artisans who have so much talent in them.

We saw this from our hotel window and had to check it out. It is a Hindu temple complex which is unbelievably beautiful. It is open to the public and they are very welcoming to all.

At the time we visited, not too many people were there. In case you go and lots of people are visiting, take advantage of the crowd by including them in your pictures.
