If nothing else, paying a visit to Akshardham Temple will broaden your mind and awake your inner being with an intensity you wouldn’t expect on entering a mere temple. But Akshardham is not just any temple. Carved with the help of 7000 artisans and constructed entirely with stones with no support from steel or concrete, it is a grand masterpiece of architecture and skill. The carved works consist of beautifully sculpted stories deities, musicians, dancers, flora and faunas which depicts the traditional and Hindu culture, spirituality and architecture. The temple has a boat ride through the exhibition of the life of Swaminarayan, to whom this temple is dedicated, and an IMAX theatre that shows a movie about Swaminarayan as the teenage yogi, making a visit here a multifaceted experience.
