The security over here is pretty tight. Cellphones, bags, purses are not allowed inside. You have to deposit everything in the gate. You can carry only small wallets... More

There is a gallery containing paintings, teachings and relics of Swaminarayan. There is also a canteen inside. Following the 2002 terrorist attack, there is a strict security check. Cameras, mobiles, wallets etc are not allowed. A major highlight... More
