"Temple of marbles, loved during sunrise and sunset"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Aug 7, 2014
One of the latest additions to Kolkata's umpteen places to look out for, Swaminarayan Mandir was opened to the public on February 2014, based on the Akshardham Temple in Delhi, and the temple is entirely made of marbles. Spread over a vast area, it's a place you would love to visit both at sunrise, and sunset.

As soon as you enter the premises, it feels good within. The first thing you come across is, the feet of Narayan. Made of red marble, it stands out clearly. As you proceed, you find bathing ghats on both the sides, that pretty much reminds of Indus Valley civilisation's "hummum".The first time I saw, I was literally awestruck.

As you proceed further, you are required to deposit your shoes at the provided counter.

As you walk up the steps, there's geniunely a soothing ambiance you can feel, quite unmistakenly.

The idols are carved out of stone, and are masterpieces by their own credit. The temple is a stunning piece of sheer architectural brilliance.

The temple premises also house a restaurant and a library, filled with books and other accessories relating to the temple.

An excellent piece of art, you can't afford to miss. If you forget to carry a camera, you will definitely regret.
