B A P S Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, Toronto Reviews
This is the place where we can feel like we are somewhere in India. This is such a beautiful and well maintained Shri Swami Narayan's Temple. This is such a beautiful example delicate design and sharp architecture history of India. But when you enter in the temple, the first impression you get is that it's a museum of history and culture then a temple. But overall it good to be here. It is good to spent some time in front of God in peaceful environment.
This place is epitome of serenity! Being a spiritual person - the calm I feel is limitless! It’s open to all, the architecture is phenomenal and well studied to resemble the Hindu traditions. Come with your questions and leave with peace!
Pros: Loved the architecture, and food. Cos: Its more of an art museum than a temple with a museum inside.. That's fine too, but the person sitting outside the museum charging us cad 5 per person and the next group cad3per person was a bit too much..the logic given to us was that they were a group of 5 and we were 4. Weird logic Well... The group who paid 3cad paid cash and we paid with credit card.
The place is so beautiful and delicate: amazing architecture! We all had a feeling that we were somewhere in India. What a great way to get to know this county and its religious traditions. If you get a chance, stay for a daily ceremony. The colors, the sounds and the smells are extraordinary.
A good enlightening experience. Really nice people there and the temple is awesome inside and out! It looks like a little piece of heaven in a crowed and busy city.
