  • Temple represents a good art work as seen at various temples across India. But this temple is established around not the actual God's as we know and believe in. It is centered to particular communities and establishment following something different not common in India. In a way foreigner visiting BAPS will get different impression. And events in BAPS are not open to all Indian community its specific to particular community. Enjoy good place to visit still.
  • Very clean peaceful place , must visit at least once.This one is not as big as the one in robinsville,NJ. Though its really good.and you can also get some fresh snacks from the shop in temple.
  • Peaceful environment as usual in many Hindu temples. Better to visit after 10 am so that you can visit shayona food court also if kids become hungry. BAPS saints hardworking attitude made this place very important for Hindutva and Indian people. Namaskar to his holiness shri pramukh swami Maharaj
  • My experience was great! It was peaceful and clean, along with the art work was interesting.
  • Very cool. Came here on a school trip in 09, it was awesome.
