Akshardham Temple, Gandhinagar

Akshardham is a beautiful Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Swaminarayan. It is designed and constructed according to ancient Indian architecture (known as the Sthaapatya shastras). The temple is considered as one of the wonders of the world for its magnificent beauty, its extricate carving, and unique combination of ancient and modern technology. 

An imposing golden figure of the Lord Swaminarayan has been placed inside the temple along with life like idols of other gods and deities. The majestic, intricately carved stone structure stands amid sprawling gardens. 

For those who are interested in architecture cannot help but marvel at the majestic structure that has been built from 6000 tonnes of pink sandstone from Rajasthan, which have been neatly fashioned together to make the temple consisting of 93 carved pillars, 40 sculpted windows and numerous other stone statues. The structure measures 108 feet (33 m) in height, 240 feet (73 m) in length and 131 feet (40 m) in width. The colonnade around the monument is 1,751 feet (534 m) in length. 

The temple is the result of the service and devotion of thousands of volunteers. And every day, it satisfies the spiritual thirst of all its visitors turning their visit into a private pilgrimage. The walls have been ornately done with literally every inch of the structure carved in the most refined way.

Now, Akshardham is one of the best places to visit. It has got gardens, rides, amusment parks and laser show

Food is also available there, so no worriers of  lunch or dinner. You must try 'Khichdi' there, it is just fantastic.
