About Akshardham (Place of Worship)

voted as clean

Akshardham is a beautiful temple complex in Delhi, which is an imitation of the Akshardham in Gandhinagar, Gujarat. Popularly known as Swaminarayan Akshardham, this temple is moderated by Pramukh Swami Maharaja, who is the spiritual head of the Bochasanwasi Shri Akshar Purushottam Swaminarayan Sanstha. Inaugurated on 6 November, 2005, this temple displays 1000 years of traditional Indian and Hindu culture, spirituality, and architecture.

The major attraction of the temple is the main monument, which is situated in the heart of the complex. This 43 m high monument is adorned with the intricate carvings of flora, fauna, dancers, musicians, and spiritual deities. The most unique feature of this monument is that is stands without the support or steel or concrete. Only Rajasthani pink sandstone and Italian Carrara marble have been used to construct the temple. 3.4 m high statue of Swaminarayan is the presiding deity of the temple. Deities of Sita Ram, Radha Krishna, Shiv Parvati, and Lakshmi Narayan also enshrined within the monument.

Another attraction of the temple complex is Hall of Values, which is also known as Sahajanand Pradarshan. This hall presents incidents from the life of Bhagwan Swaminarayan through animatronics and diorama presentations. Theatre called Neelkanth Kalyan Yatra, musical fountain called Yagnapurush Kund and Garden of India known as Bharat Upavan, are the other attractions of this temple complex. Additionally, the temple complex houses Yogi Hraday Kamal, Narayan Sarovar and AARSH Centre.

Visitors can enjoy boat ride called the Sanskruti Vihar in the artificial river made within the temple complex. Tourists from Noida can Akshardham Metro Station on Blue Line by metro.

""Akshardham temple Awesome & memorable place"" new review

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted 1 week ago
I visited here multiple time with my family, it's one of the most popular and awesome places to visit if you are in Delhi. You show here beautiful carving & huge statues of Gods & Goddesses inside the temple. Musical & Light fountain is main attractions inside here, you can't see that types of Musical fountain in India so please make sure to visit here if you want to see awesome place.

No photos and even phones allowed inside. Very strict. Built in the year 2005. Water show. Absolutely worth a longer visit. Gorgeous elephant statues with quotes. Immaculate across the board. One of my favourite attractions in New Delhi.

"Akshardham good temple"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
It is the best one of the temple in the world I have been seen. Well planned and good looking appearance and placed it in the heart of the city. The facilities in side the temple is very good and high quality products of food is ready to have. The price of all products whatever may be is most costlier. This have to be reduce so that the common people may can take.

Awesome place .. Silent with greenary temple in the middle of crowdy town. Beautifully designed. Fountain show was the must watch one. Beautiful presentation of story through the medium of water and light. Food court was awesome with clean and hygiene food. Since foundation show begins after sunset, the best time to visit is evening
