Akshardham, Gandhinagar

#1 of 15 in Things to do in Gandhinagar
Must see · Religious Site · Landmark
Akshardham serves as a grand complex dedicated to Lord Swaminarayan, the founder of the prominent Hindu civic organization BAPS. A massive and intricately carved pink sandstone mandir--a Hindu place of worship--stands as the centerpiece of the 23 acre (9.3 hectare) complex. Standing at a height of 108 ft (33 m) and covering a floor area of 32,427 sq ft (3,014 sq m), this mandir features over 6,000 tons (5.5 million lbs) of pink sandstone. After you finish marveling at the main mandir, stroll through the complex's series of decorative mandapams--pillared outdoor halls used for public rituals. The complex also features artistic and historic exhibits meant to educate visitors about the path to spiritual enlightenment.

  • I can't explain with words.unblever place for enjoy your vacation what a Water Show, what a gardening and temples really very very amazing
  • One of the best artificial places to visit in Gujarat. The temple is huge and yet very very well managed and handled. The gardens are beautifully carved. It also has food facilities inside campus and food is pretty good. There also is water show during night times which in my eyes is a technical achievement. But the best thing about the campus is that they don't allow camera or cell phone inside. So you can actually enjoy your time when you are inside. Love it ... what a wonderful place .... peace ✌🏻
