A huge monument of pink sandstone, with an idol of their philosopher Swamynarayan which has gold leafing, high ceilings and is cool without any airconditioning. then there is an outdoor amphitheatre that can seat abt 2500 for an amazing watershow which is a presentation of the Indian way of thinking thru folklore, brilliant laser technology, using Fire, water and wind to create a wonderful mix of the past and present to bless the future! There is the human element in it too. There were abt 2000 people to visit it even on a very hot evening. There is a food court available for those interested in authentic Gujrati food after the evening Watershow. But for the weather, it was an amazing experience

I have been to Singapore's Sentosa island which has water show and Akshardham's water show was comparable to that.I was very surprised to see something like that.I am not very religious person, but used to visit Akshardham quite often when I was in Gandhinagar , just for the reason that it is very nice place, where you can just sit and be away from your mobile.Food is resonable and the place is very clean. And the show is definitely one to watch

Landscaping, exhibition , mythology, presentation, sound/light show, volunteers and the Temple, each one of it - a soothing experience.

Lunch was average, served in a clean environment, portions small, but as we only have small appetite was enough. Good place to eat as it was clean.

The temple is average, not as spread out as the Delhi one. However, a good visit. remember, bags and mobile phones cannot be taken in (biggest problem). However, all safe arrangements are made outside to keep them. The Water Show is a must see. It is under priced. Gets a little draggy in the middle. But, a must see in Ahmedabad.
