  • This modern day temple is a piece of work. Excellent sculpture and ambiance of Swami Narayan Akshardham temple really gives peace in mind and creates a spiritual feeling inside mind. Management is good but the security is tight, which causes little discomfort and takes lots of time (average 20 minutes). Parking facility is good and is very well connected with public transport facilities like metro train and buses. Campus is huge and have food and verity of stalls providing stationary and miscellaneous items. Many people comes to visit but not very crowded and well maintained with all amenities. They take away your mobile phone to be free from ringing of phone calls. There is good clock room facility to deposit mobile phone and other things. The exhibitions are paid types and are bit costly but must see shows. It gives the taste of the local culture. It takes more than 2 hours to visit so you must have that much time with you but it is worth seeing.
  • It is a really good and calm place... It is a beautiful temple.... Cameras, mobile phones, food, belts are not allowed inside the temple.... U can submit them outside but to save time it is better to leave them home.... Fountain show in night is the best part... It is a must watch
  • Fantastic scenic place and full of fun. Should be visited if you are in Delhi. Better than any other place in Delhi . Only one thing to take care ...They are more secure so mobile and any other electronic items not allowed. Even bags are not allowed but we can submit at out. All services offered are free of cost.
  • Wonderful Place. Witness an architectural and spiritual beauty in the calm and serene surroundings. Mobiles are not allowed inside so for the duration you will be with yourself rather than technology. Must visit place if in Delhi. Easily accessible via both road and metro. Walking distance from Akshardham metro station of Delhi metro.
  • Absolutely worth visiting! The fine artwork and great detail inside and outside the temple is astonishing. Free entry. No photos are allowed. Only the extra exhibitions inside the complex boat ride/ robots/ show are quite touristy. Be advised there might be long queues for the cloakroom, so it's better to leave cameras etc. in the car if possible.
