About Akshardham Temple

The magnanimous structure and ethereal beauty of Akshardham dominates the eastern suburbs of Delhi. Also known as Swaminarayan Akshardham, the elements of this temple draw inspiration from traditional Orissan, Gujarati, Mughal and Rajasthani architecture. Rajasthani pink sandstone and Italian Carrara marble are the only materials used to construct the temple. Enter this magnificent place and the interiors will blow your mind. There are more than 20,000 carved deities, saints and mythical beings. A 3.4-metre high statue of Swaminarayan is the presiding deity here. The center of the compound having 43-metre high monument is the highlight of this place. It invites many visitors and is ornated with carvings of flora, fauna, dancers, musicians and spiritual deities. Figurines of Sita Ram, Radha Krishna, Shiv Parvati, and Lakshmi Narayan are also enshrined in the monument. Hall of Virtues, Bharat Upvan and Musical Fountains are other attractions of this place. Take a boat ride to get a glimpse of over 10,000 years of Indian culture and spirituality while streaming through water fountains. A light and sound show takes place near the step well every evening here. It is a 24-minute play of multi-color lasers, underwater flames, water jets and surround sound with live actors.
