Styled after the havelis found in 17th century royal courts in India, the temple has several architecturally pleasing features. Musicians, poets and dancers are carved into the wooden portico; there’s a huge courtyard of teak and rosewood columns with mythological carvings; a cultural center, an gymnasium and an assembly hall. The Heritage museum at the mandir exhibits the historical significance of Indo-Canadians as well as inherited Hindu traditions. The temple organises various events and festivals throughout the year.

Most stunning landmark of Canada. Beautifully hand carved stones with intricate carving & amazing structure of a stone over the stone. A must visit place to get eternal peace!! Many ask, "How can you mix spirituality and social service?" We ask, "How can you separate the two?" Those who wish to sincerely serve society must be spiritually pure and only those who are spiritually pure can sincerely serve society! The BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha strives to better society through individual development by instilling values, promoting spirituality, cultivating skills, and nurturing growth. We aim to preserve Indian culture and the Hindu ideals of faith, unity, and selfless service in diverse communities around the world. We envision a society whose joy lies in the joy of others.
Most beautiful stunning temple. For me this is the best temple in Canada. The architecture, the process , the politeness, the Hindu knowledge. I can’t think of a better more holistic spiritual experience. They requested I don’t take more photos inside to I stopped.
How to rate this place. Such a huge setup and well maintained place it is. Great for some religion knowledge for kids. Peaceful environment and aesthetically beautiful place. Amazing carving on the stones reminds me of Indian temples likes of Delwara of Mt Abu. Big thumbs up for maintaining such huge setup away from your country.
Went there since start. We go for spiritual not for museum purpose unlike most people. My friend told me if you worship Durga, Krishna etc you get stuck in that heaven. Only swami can liberate you fully. Which don't make sense. Then he always preaches us and friends his version of swami yet doesn't take out $1.00 to spend on us. Having visit this temple we can't take pics can't do this can't do that and food is not always available? So in this case we better off at out regular temple. My friends loves to preach karma, reincarnation to us all and how yogis live 1000 years. However what benefit have they done to us? Our answer is practise what you preach. We come to BAPS for spiritual development not for museum. However we didn't find so we not interested. Our friend needs to wake up be honest and answer if swami is God then solve middle East problems. Yes. Instead Putin and Trump fixed it! We don't plan to come again. No offence true spiritual place is where you develop not beautiful architecture and swami is not God.Thankyou
