  • The temple is so peaceful and relaxing. The staff members are very cooperative. Laser show is very good. Well maintained. One beautiful thing is they don't allow phones and camera so you can enjoy the nature and beauty with your own eyes not through the cell phone camera's. It's a big place. By 7 the show starts so buy tickets before and till that time you can enjoy the nature
  • Nice, centuries old, Swaminarayan temple in Old City of Ahmedabad. Inside, the temple is kept well. But just outside temple, the roads, traffic, and the surrounding area requires much attention for improvement. The present status does not fit well with the nice temple. There are many displays in the temple, all of which mostly in gujarathy. Boards in English also will be very helpful for the devotees from other states.
  • Swaminarayan temple kalupur is known for it's beauty and architecture of that time. It is a best place to start a heritage walk in old Ahmedabad because it's center of heritage from here you can go at any heritage spot easily
  • This place is similar to other swami Narayan temple In other cities. Peaceful, serene , blissful and can never forget the experience being there . The temple is made up of marble and it gives divine peace .
  • World's First Swaminarayan Temple... This temple is the first temple of the Swaminarayan sect to have been built. In 1822, the land was given by the British government to do so, and Swaminarayan himself entrusted the responsibility for the construction of the temple to Ananandanand Swami. The temple is carved in Burmese teak, and every arch and bracket is painted with bright colors, a defining characteristic of Swaminarayan temples everywhere. There are several idols installed by Swaminarayan himself, as well as a display of some of his personal items and sculptures. In the adjoining haveli, there are quarters for pilgrims of the sect, a special section for women, and an area where ceremonies and teaching sessions are held for women only. Located near Kalupur in the eastern part of the old city, the Swaminarayan Temple is a splash of color in the midst of the city’s grey and is also the starting point for the Heritage Walk through the pols of the old city.
