Akshardham temple in East Delhi

The Akshardham temple complex in Delhi is a magnificent structure, inaugrated in November, 2005. The President, APJ Abdul Kalam attended the inaugration. The complex has been built on the banks of the serene River Yamuna and lies over a sprawling 100 acres of lush manicured lawns adorned with water fountains and carved pavilions. The temple belongs to the Swaminarayan sect, and is open from 9 AM - 9 PM on all days except for Monday when it is closed. It can be very crowded on weekends. It is located at the intersection of the road coming from Nizamuddin Bridge and the road coming from Noida.
If entering the complex, please remember that there is heavy security, and even things such as mobile phones are not allowed. Leave them at home, or deposit them in the safe locker.
Besides the Swaminarayan temple the complex consists of the main monument, exhibition halls, an IMAX theatre and a musical fountain, surrounded by a garden. It also got a restaurant modeled on the Ajanta and Ellora caves and an Ayurvedic bazaar. The entire structure is made without steel as per Sthaapatya shastras of India, and is made from sandstone and marble.
