B A P S Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, Toronto Reviews - Write a Review
I went here on a Monday long weekend and found it to be an amazing experience. When u first get in you take your shoes off after getting through the foyer. Everything is so clean and well kept. The place is only 10 years old. It was so quiet, any and every question we had was answered to our satisfaction. The hospitality and being treated as more than a guest was very appreciated. I would and will be coming here again. A good presentation of the Hindu religion and it's ethics along with Indian history and culture.
The structure is wonderful. It's only 10 years old. They have wonderful set of books that are sold on Hinduism as well. Make sure you are not wearing shorts as they will encourage you wear a dhoti that have in the hallway. Also they don't want anyone taking photos inside. First time I went the guy there took my camera from me and then he reviewed the entire tape and deleted everything and gave it back. I was a bit upset and kind of ruined my mood but I was there for godly reasons and not for money making business. I have been there few times now and the atmosphere is great. I highly recommend it but no camera inside and wear proper clothing.
Awesome place to visit. Must visit museum to learn history of hinduism. Must checkout architecture (inside & outside) by looking closely at murtis. Make sure to spend good amount of time to enjoy your visit.
Been there for three times... got to see the sacred shrines just one time. Felt more like a museum to me than a temple. Of course it's beautiful but never felt peaceful. Today the experience just got worse... on the 10th anniversary of Toronto's BAPS we thought to visit the place but after reaching there we felt like it's more like a business kind of place. You can see the idols only if you have $351 pass... wow... to me that's a whole new information. Before going there I checked the website and there was no information like this.... at last without seeing the idols we came back. And I don't think I'm going to visit BAPS ever again... thanks for the wonderful experience!
Serenity, divinity, and harmony... these are three things which are essential to life I found here. If you are looking for peace in heart, mind, and in life.. do visit this temple. Contemplate while doing meditation and you will see the difference..
