  • I believe this is the best temple in New Jersey. The architecture is just beautiful. You can go with small children and big groups. The tour takes about 30 minutes to do. Highly recommended. 
  • Nice temple with impressive interiors. All interiors are hand crafted. This is 4th BAPS temple i am visiting in USA. I have been to Chicago, Atlanta and Tampa BAPS temple. This is a biggest one. The c...  read more »
  • Stunning architecture and the carving is beyond belief. Such intricate detail throughout. Every step takes your breath away. Truly inspiring and peaceful. Can't wait for the completion of the Akshardham complex in 2020.
  • My 1 star is for how beautiful the temple is. It's an amazing experience to look at all the artwork but other then that it was an horrendous experience. First of all segregation in this age, come on. This was a big let down. Then there were volunteers asking people not to take pictures, my simple question, why? I didn't go to your temple to buy expensive snacks from your shop but to go to a place which feels like home away from home (lndia). Thanks but no thanks.
  • One day its going to be an architectural wonder of New Jersey. If you are visiting in summer, make sure you are not wearing shorts or sleevless shirts/T-Shirts. Because you will have to wear special clothing on top of it. They will give you that for free and you just return it when you exit. Another major thing- its not allowed to take pictures while you are in the temple. I think it is not right. People around the world deserve to see this beauty of art. You can't just force people to not take pictures. Any other place you visit in the world, weather its a place of worship or architectural wonder, they dont care if you take pictures. Instead, they motivate you because they want you to learn and spread the words about them. Thats how you attract thousands or hundreds of thousands of visitors. I think they should allow it here too.
  • Ans. to all critics: Robinsville temple is not an Akshardhan but it is a temple of lord swaminarayan, an akshardham is being build just near the temple and it is going to be much larger than the Delhi akshardham. Some says that these huge amount of money should have distributed to poor and needy people, i would like to say to them that the temple's sculptures were carved by poor and needy workers and the BAPS given then good salary for doing these work, i guess that giving employment is the best one can do than giving away money for nothing, these will not change a mind of a needy and it will not bring morality to poor, but in exchange BAPS gave the place to worship and lessons of Hinduism for next generation in USA and all over the world, every temple built by the BAPS has generated lot of employment and reach people has contributed their precious time so think about this and stop talking against Hinduism after all we are all Hindus. there is one more benefit is that white Americans does not think good of Indians, but soon after the akshardham would be ready to visit, Americans will be amazed and start respecting Indians. in the nutshell, this is all for greater good. thanks..
  • What bothers me about this sect and temples of BAPS is how women are viewed. The segregation they keep does not actually fits with Hinduism. You always see Radha Krishna, Shankar Parvati, Lakshmi Vishnu together because they are considered equal and one. And consider the fact that the women are seated behind men far from the door. Then they keep Darshan open for 10-15 minutes and close the door. I have hardly seen this in temple in New Jersey. The schedule is designed to maximize revenue so that people spend more time shopping for snacks in temple shop. The temple is wonderful art piece. But it just seems to be a piece of art. What else can you think when someone from temple tells you to look after your 2 year old running around pillars and getting worried that a two year will break marble art by running into one of the pillars instead of being worried about the toddler getting hurt. It was insensitive and shows what kind of empty people are at helm. My two cent for your million dollar temple if you can't teach your people about sensitivity to a two year old and you are more worried about a child touching it. What harm can a toddler do to marble by just touching it?
