The Baps Swaminarayan Mandir is dedicated to Lord Swaminarayan who established his own faith and ideas of Hinduism in the 18th century. His followers are called ‘satsangis’ which simply translate to “the one who is looking for the truth”. His ideologies embrace the idea of making peace and love one’s dharma and to combine dedication with detachment and knowledge. The Baps Swaminarayan Mandir promotes meditation as the core of its faith.
The temple itself consists of a distinct pinkish -white structure that is supported with high arches. The huge statues of elephants at the entrance, intricate carvings on the temple, the elaborately decorated doorway to the shrine and the one-of-a-kind gold and white latticework saw on the pillars close to the shrine, make this is a stunning architectural marvel. There are paintings seen all around the temple that represent and depict the teachings of Lord Swaminarayan and beautiful deities that are adorned with jewellery pieces. The spiritual atmosphere of the place is felt right from the entrance and if you love traditional Indian design and craftsmanship, this place will keep you busy for hours! Take some time to see the beautiful sculptures placed in the gilded mandaps when you visit the temple.
