A very popular Hindu shrine, sited in East Delhi, the Akshardham temple looks awesome on the banks of River Yamuna. It was constructed under the guidance of current spiritual leader, Pramukh Swami Maharaj who also happens to be the guiding light of Swaminarayan Sanstha, BAPS. It is indeed a pious shrine that amazes you with its ious cultural and educational activities which are beautifully conducted by the Swaminarayan Sanstha. However, its architecture looks similar to that of Akshardham Temple in Gandhinagar Gujarat and hence thoroughly made up of Pink Sandstone and Italian Marble. Inside it you may see 11 ft tall gilded statue of its leader Bhagwan Swaminarayan and elaborated floral designing, arches, 20,000 statues, and extraordinary carved pillars remarkably represent wonderful Indian culture. While discovering its inner sights, you may also see first the Hall of Values or the Sahajanand Pradarshan featuring incidents from the life of Swaminarayan, a film Neelkanth Yatrain in its in-house theatre called Neelkanth Kalyan Yatra and feel refreshed at the Yagnapurush Kund, the country's largest step well musical. However, the Boat Ride, Garden of India, Narayan Saro, AARSH Centre, etc. are some really exquisite draws of this temple that educates you more about your Indian cultural vastness.
