(1,500+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
Akshardham serves as a grand complex dedicated to Lord Swaminarayan, the founder of the prominent Hindu civic organization BAPS. A massive and intricately carved pink sandstone mandir--a Hindu place of worship--stands as the centerpiece of the 23 acre (9.3 hectare) complex. Standing at a height of 108 ft (33 m) and covering a floor area of 32,427 sq ft (3,014 sq m), this mandir features over 6,000 tons (5.5 million lbs) of pink sandstone. After you finish marveling at the main mandir, stroll through the complex's series of decorative mandapams--pillared outdoor halls used for public rituals. The complex also features artistic and historic exhibits meant to educate visitors about the path to spiritual enlightenment.

  • Absolutely beautiful temple!! This place is also a must visit, the architecture of the temples in India are just amazing. This I think is slightly smaller. There is a bigger temple in Delhi, same name.
  • Awesome place to visit and spend quality time with family. The infrastructure is also so stunning and is mostly crowded at the weekends. It also has a museum under it at the ground level.
  • Amazing place..With lush green garden and with great architecture.. Especially the Water show ~ mind blowing with Nachiketa story in 3D, Laser technology.. Absolutely worth this place🤘🙏
  • Nice place to visit. Prefer to visit in the evening. Must watch Laser+water show worth investment (Ticket: 90/-). Many rides are also available. Do visit once when you visit Gandhinagar (Ahmedabad). Note: Closed On Monday. Timings 9:00AM to 7:30PM. Laser show timings are 7:00 on weekdays, 7:30 on weekends.
  • Beautiful place in Gujarat. Very nice and peace place. I already gone this place 3 to 5 times. Their canteen foods are very tasty. Overall place is very beautiful.
