B A P S Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, Toronto Reviews
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.
Gorgeous structure, only saw the outside but that alone is breathtaking. Staff are a bit unfriendly, and aggressive. I was taking photos on site and was told not to, so I stopped but then security continued to follow me around the building and hounded me to delete the photos on my camera.
Beautiful structure and must visit site if you are in the Toronto area specially the inside upstairs dome. Details of the art is breathtaking.
My classmates and I went here and we absolutely love how detailed the structure is. The tour guide showed us how Hindus worship and we also learned about how colourful Hinduism is.
Very organized,clean and full of divinity. They have lots of sabha as well as utsavas , so check the calendar on their website.
