About
Fantastic site to visit - unimaginable architechture, great theme show, diaorama and I max presentation. If any tourist, irresepctive of his religion or creed, has half a day to spare, this is a must see. It is one man's creation in five years totally with voluntary support. A monument which makes every indian proud!

" Simply marvellous " - may not be the right thing to describe this place.

Well maintained, neat arrangements, very good plan for Parking, Mobile phone lockers, and luggages...

If you wish to visit this place, kindly avoid mobile phones and over luggages..
Or else, you would find around 30 minutes of your time standing in queue to keep the mobile phones in separate lockers..

Kindly visit this place after 5 pm..
You could enjoy the neat lighting arrangements here..

Separate programme of Water fountain show is being organised ( you have to but tickets for this show)..

In the reception, kindly get a copy of the booklet in different languages which clearly describes the importance of this place..

Pucca planned and well maintained temple complex..

I am not really a spiritual person yet I decided to visit this place. There is a lot of rush so, that throws all the spirituality out of the window. However, the main temple has really beautiful carvings. I would suggest you go at mid afternoon - 3-4 PM IST and even an hour earlier if you want to go for the exhibition which costs around 350-400 INR more. I skipped that one and jumped directly at the temple; the entire temple - walls, ceilings, pillars are beautifully carved and the led lights just add that sparkle to that beauty. Then you can visit the water show area and buy the tickets for that show too. The story in the show is okayish but, the fountain, laser (lights) are more fascinating.

swaminarayan temple is one of the best place to spend time with one self , as we leave our mobile phones in the locker. the way to the temple has so many carvings , all to be seen in depth and captured in your eyes.
things allowed in the temple
1) yourself
2) waterbottle ( transparent )
3) baby bag ( on checking )
4) wallet
rest all is to be left at the locker. the locker system is sate and well maintained. picutre is taken at rhe time of deposit and ccollection , specifically of the mobile phones
things to do inside
3 exhibition + 1 light and sound watershow
the first is the story of swaminarayan , well explained and portrayed (must watch )
second is a movie - can be missed aa its an on acreen movie , not enacted
third - boat ride (sail through many years of ancient Indian history. Experience the lifestyle of the Vedic era. Pass through the oldest university and watch an eye surgery happening more than a thousand years ago. This 12 minute boat ride presents some of India’s important contributions to the world)

light and sound watershow- evening
24 minutes show is how kids play in their onnocence and make the gods realise how yhey are misusing their power.
