“Not that impressive”

Swaminarayan Mandir
Ranked #16 of 135 things to do in Ahmedabad
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 15 March 2014

Swaminayan Mandir is quite interesting for its sculptures and decorations, but the fact that cars drive close by and that it is too much embedded in the city itself both make it difficult to consider that temple as emotional and impressive as it could have been otherwise.

akshardhaam and swaminarayan is the same at Gandhinagar.

very well maintained and good for a one time visit. No entry fee, but ensure that you carry nothing except your wallet (if needed) phones of any kind are not allowed. No cameras as well.

Easy rickshaw ride to centre of old city - colourful mandir among the narrow streets of markets and bazaars. Good starting point to experience old city but is quite run down.

It is a common perception that Hindu temples are not well-maintained and lacks in cleanliness. Swaminarayan Mandir at Ahmedabad breaks this conception. A wonderful example of architecture, it exhibits the finest pieces of art inside it. Once you enter, this place takes you to another world where peace and tranquility !
