Akshardham, Ahmedabad

4.6
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.

You'll find a large choice of accommodations across the sprawling urban area of Ahmedabad. Rental accommodations, simple family-run guesthouses, youth hostels, and hotels in formerly residential blocks appear throughout the city, with more established options the closer you get to the river, and the suburban parts offering the most cost-effective choices.
