by srhussaini

One of the wonders of the world, the imposing 10 story high, intricately carved architectural masterpiece, enshrines Golden Murti (idol) of Lord Swaminarayan, the founder of the Swaminarayan faith.

Akshardham is an architectural marvel of this Century. Awe-inspiring auspiciousness and amazing craftsmanship. 6,000 tons of pink sandstone have been pieced together with incredible accuracy.

More than 12 million man hours of 900 skilled craftsmen have created this magnificent monument of
93 sculpted pillars, 40 windows carved from both sides, and a feast of forms and filigrees.
Thousands come daily to discover the inspirations of design and devotion, effort and elegance, care and consciousness, silence and spirituality.
