Swaminarayan Akshardham Temple

The genius will explore what you can pay for!

This fairytale-like temple complex is both Hindu house of worship and a spiritual and cultural campus. The centre of the complex is a Swaminarayan memorial made of pink stone and marble, full of decorated pillars and carved figures. Go on a boat ride through India’s 10.000 year history. Walk through the close to a kilometre long colonnade, admire the thousands of carved Hindu deities and mythical figures and learn all about the life of Baghwan Swaminarayan (1781 - 1830). Around sunset there is a watershow with lights, lasers, video projections and fire, that takes you back to the Vedic age.
