Excellent place for devotees of Shri Swaminarayan. The place is well maintained , with a nice meditation hall and a very large Auditorium that could take 1000 people. They also have a gift and sweets shop. Never miss opportunity to visit the temple if you are in Milpitas.

Nice Temple in the Milpitas area and great place to meet Gujarati Friends and get to know their culture. Temple is quite big and neatly maintained. They have snacks and sweet shop with great variety and freshly made vegetarian/vegan snacks. There is also free food for all visiting the temple.

I have been coming to this Hindu temple for years. It provides many services to the community, including daily puja & aarti, as well as major events around the time of festivals - often with bhajans & cultural performances. If you are visiting, come during Diwali time as they have a major exhibition to learn about Hinduism & really good... More
