Akshardham was constructed by Bochasanwasi Srhi Akshar Purushottam Swaminarayan Sanstha (BAPS). More than 300,000,000 hours were spent in constructing this massive and beautiful structure. More than 8,000 workers built The Akshardham. Marble used for building the mandir building was intricately carved sandstone.
“Akshardham” implies the perfect residence God. It is hailed as an everlasting spot of dedication, virtue and peace. Swaminarayan Akshardham at New Delhi is a Mandir – a home God, a Hindu place of love, and otherworldly and social grounds committed to dedication, learning and amicability. Immortal Hindu profound messages, dynamic reverential customs and antiquated design all are resounded in its craft and architecture. The mandir is to honor to Bhagwan Swaminarayan (1781-1830), the symbols, devas and awesome sages of Hinduism. The generally styled complex was initiated on 6 November 2005 with the gifts of HH Pramukh Swami Maharaj and through the committed endeavors of talented artisans and volunteers.
A visit to Akshardham is a profoundly advancing background. Whether it is in understanding the force of supplication, in feeling the quality of peacefulness, in monitoring the all inclusive nature of Hinduism’s old standards, or quite recently in respecting the excellence of God’s house Earth –-every component has an otherworldly centrality.
