means the divine abode of God.

It is hailed as

an eternal place of devotion, purity and peace.

Swaminarayan Akshardham

at New Delhi is

a Mandir – an abode of God,

a Hindu house of worship,

and a spiritual and cultural campus

dedicated to devotion, learning and harmony.

Timeless Hindu spiritual messages,

vibrant devotional traditions

and ancient architecture

all are echoed in its art and architecture.

The mandir is a humble tribute to

Bhagwan Swaminarayan (1781- 1830),

the avatars, devas and great sages of Hinduism.

The traditionally-styled

Swaminarayan Akshardham complex

was inaugurated on 6 November 2005

with the blessings of

HH Pramukh Swami Maharaj

and through the devoted efforts

of skilled artisans and volunteers.
