About Akshardham Temple

Akshardham Temple is one of Gujarat’s most prominent cultural centers. Located in Gandhinagar, is not only a temple but also an architectural delight. One can see various aspects of art, architecture, education, research and exhibitions come together under one roof at this temple. The temple was established in the year 1992, and it is dedicated to Lord Swaminarayan. A gilded 7 feet tall idol of Lord Swaminarayan, the chief deity of the temple, is the main attraction here. Measuring 248 feet in length, 131 feet in width and 108 feet in height, the Akshardham Temple is counted amongst the most magnificent edifices of modern Indian architecture. The intricately carved walls of the temple are made of a pink stone that glistens in the sunlight. The entire complex is surrounded by lush green gardens that make for great picnic spots and meditation. One of these gardens, called the Sahajanand Van, serves as a garden and a children’s park that includes a beautiful waterfall, lake, and herbal garden.
