Temples of Swaminarayan Sampraday

Many incarnations born to the land of India, Lord Shri Swaminarayan is the only who establish his own temple, installed the idols of his own. Starting from the base to the final structure, lord himself served with the voluntaries and saints. Temples are centre for learning about human, nature and God. This is the place where ethics and values are reinforced. People celebrate festivals and seek shelter in sad time under the roof of temple.

The construction of the Temple itself was the effect of devotion to God. So, the elaborate features and exquisite carvings of the Mandir were simply the physical embodiments of devotion of the devotees who constructed the Mandir.

The architecture of a Mandir also promotes a message that is spiritually and socially beneficial. The architecture of the Mandir evokes feelings of purity, devotional fervor, faith, wonder at the splendor of God, and pride in one’s culture. Swaminarayan Mandir Kalupur, Ahmedabad is the first temple of Swaminarayan Sampraday.
