It is currently open to the public.About The TempleThe 32000sqft temple, officially called the Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, sits on 30acre. With hand-carved stone spires that tower 75ft, it is the tallest building in Lilburn, Georgia, dominating the intersection of Rockbridge Road and Lawrenceville Highway. More than 1,300 craftsmen and 900 volunteers dedicated their time in putting this 34,450-piece stone building together.

Then, all of the nearly 35,000 pieces were shipped to the United States. It serves members of the Swaminarayan branch of Hinduism, which originated in India more than 200 years ago. The traditional design features custom-carved stonework, a wraparound veranda and five prominent pinnacles reminiscent of the Himalayan hills.Plan to visit BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Lilburn attractions using our Lilburn travel route app .

Felt so happy after seeing the firecrackers for Diwali(also known as Festival of Lights) 2017 which happened to be 10 years of anniversary. Had delicious food and fun time with family. Lot of local people spent time like a real festival.. I recommend this place to visit at least once if anyone lives near by!
