We have visited APS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir twice, once in winter and once in summer.We like its superb architecture and I love to shop for Indian medicinal products from its gift shop. This is one of the most beautifully designed structures I have seen.

The Temple and the Exhibition Centre is located in North Toronto. You can reach it by taking Highway 427 North from Highway 401.

The Temple's official website states:"The fusion of traditional Indian architecture with modern technology has attracted people from all walks of life; including students on field trips, accomplished architects and engineers and visitors from all over the world who come to enjoy the experience. All visitors have been awestruck by the unique architecture and the detailed intricacy of the carvings. The Mandir is a masterpiece of intricate design and workmanship of ancient Indian arts, traditions and philosophy. The Mandir was constructed in a record 18 months. It is a testimony to the sheer dedication and devotion of over 400 volunteers."
