Akshardham

AkshardhamAkshardham is a Hindu temple complex in Delhi, India. Also referred to as Delhi Akshardham or Swaminarayan Akshardham, the complex displays 10,000 years of traditional Indian and Hindu culture, spirituality, and architecture. The building was inspired and moderated by Pramukh Swami Maharaj, the spiritual head of the Bochasanwasi Shri Akshar Purushottam Swaminarayan Sanstha, whose 3,000 volunteers helped 7,000 artisans construct Akshardham.

The temple, which attracts 70 percent of all tourists who visit Delhi, was officially opened on 6 November 2005. It sits on the banks of the Yamuna River adjacent to the proposed 2010 Commonwealth Games village. The monument features a large central monument crafted entirely of stone, exhibitions on incidents from the life of Bhagwan Swaminarayan and the history of India, an IMAX feature, a musical fountain, and large landscaped gardens.

 Akshardham

History

The building had been planned since 1968 as a vision of Yogiji Maharaj. Yogiji Maharaj, the spiritual head of the BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha at the time, expressed his desire for wanting a grand temple built on the banks of the Yamuna river, to two or three devotee families of Swaminarayan Bhagwan that resided in New Delhi at the time. Attempts were made but little progress happened, and by 1971 Yogiji Maharaj passed away. By 1982, Pramukh Swami Maharaj, who was next in line as the spiritual head of BAPS, started to continue fulfilling the dream of his guru, Yogiji Maharaj, and prompted the devotees to look into the possibility of building the temple in Delhi. A request for the plan was put forward to the Delhi Development Authority (DDA), and several different places were suggested, such as Ghaziabad, Gurgaon and Faridabad.

  • Hall of Values Named Sahajanand Pradarshan, the Hall of Values features life-like robotics and dioramas which display incidents from Bhagwan Swaminarayan’s life, portraying his message of peace, harmony, humility, service to others and devotion to God. The hall features the world’s smallest animatronic robot in the form of Ghanshyam Maharaj, the child form of Bhagwan Swaminarayan.
  • Theatre Named Nilkanth Kalyan Yatra, the theatre houses Delhi’s first and only large format screen, measuring 85-foot (26 m) by 65-foot (20 m). The theatre shows a film especially commissioned for the complex, Nilkanth Yatra, to recount the journey Bhagwan Swaminarayan made during his teenage years throughout India. An international version of the film called Mystic India was released in 2005 at IMAX and giant screen cinemas worldwide. A 27-foot (8.2 m) tall bronze statue of Nilkanth Varni is outside the theatre.

  • Boat ride Named Sanskruti Vihar, this ride takes visitors on a journey through 10,000 years of Indian history in approximately 10 minutes. Visitors sit in specially designed peacock shaped boats that make their way around an artificial river, passing the world’s first university, chemistry laboratories, ancient hospitals, and bazaars, finally ending with a message for the future of India.
  • Musical fountain Known as the Yagnapurush Kund, it is India’s largest step well. It features a very large series of steps down to a traditional ‘yagna kund’. During the day, these steps provide rest for the visitors to the complex and at night, a musical fountain show representing the circle of life is played to an audience which is seated on the same steps. The fountain is named after the founder of the Hindu organization, Shastriji Maharaj.

    India is a land of temples,mosques and churches, but the recent events in some provinces of India is a disgrace to the majority community. The central Government should ot be a silent spectator, but come forward and take some bold steps to eradicate actions of a few ill-advised souls.

    Gentlemen, thanks for the coverage on the BAP Swaminaryan Temple of Delhi. I am on a visit to UK and just 2 days back happened to visit the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir at Neasden, London. YES it is very very nice temple and the main being the exhibition – Understanding Hinduism. I wish it is to be seen by every person immaterial of their religion,cast or creed. It is the first traditional Mandir in Europe and carved and constructed entirely according to the ancient Shilpashastras. No steel has been used in the entire temple. 2,828 tonnes of Bulgarian limestone and 2,000 tonnes of Italian Carrara marble were shipped to India, carved by over 1,500 craftsmen and reshipped to London. In all 26,300 carved pieces including intricate ceilings of Indian Ambaji marble, were finally assembled like a giant jigsaw within 3 years. It is a miracle in modern times worked by over thousand volunteers and the vision & inspiration of His Holiness Pramukh Swami Maharaj the fifth spiritual successor of Bhagwan Swaminarayan – Thanks to you once again. and Cheers.

  • aditi

    Wow, thanks for forwording this mail

  • It’s very interesting and it’s very amazing. I too want to watch the beautiful place once in my life……..

  • I had gone to the temple with my son, before he went to New Zealand. We were both very proud of the manner in which our culture and values have been highlighted. My son was delighted to see the movie Nilkanth yatra in New Zealand, as Mystic India. This is the only field in which we excel and no one can compare with us. More than the grandeur of the buildings, it is the display of ancient India which impressed.

  • I never saw such a beautiful temple anywhere in the world. It is really a masterpiece and mindblowing.
    I humbly prey Almight God to reside there.

    Every person in this world want to succeed in his life. But very few of them really succeeds…..! Single man cannot even to think to build like this. If God wants….He may also want to see that holy place.! Really speaking there is no place in this world to equate with this holy temple.
    I sincerely BEG one and all of the persons who visits Delhi, he must do go and visits that shrine..! But he has atleast 5 to 6 hours in his hand to see 50% of the temple. It is true.!!
    And another thing is there are so many things which cannot be explained in words which can only be there to feel.Please go there and feel the experience in the inner shrine and tell me am I right ? to me to (thillairosepadman@yahoo.co.in) in a simple words IT IS MAN MADE WONDER..!!

    India is one of the oldest continent on the face of the earth and it boasts of civilisations prevalent even before Christ was born. The Harappa and Mohenjadaro valleys have displayed the extent of our advancement in knowledge. In modern days, our cultural tradition and religious fervour among the Hindus has received a big boost by the construction of Aksharadhama Temple in Delhi, showcasing our rich architectural heritage to the world. This unique temple has now become a location for every visitor in India and abroad to view and admire. Long Live our rich cultural and religious heritage.

    I did visit this place and it is Amazing. There is Disney style tour inside like going from one staged area to other, with story being told. Also there is a boat ride which takes you through history. It is amazing and unique structure in New Delhi, India. I think more structures like this should be built in the world. Other comments from some of the readers suggesting that shelters should be built, I disagree. Shelters and other structures and other charities are also built and done by BAPS all over the world, so if BAPS builts a structure like Askhardam in New Delhi, why have a negative comment.

  • Its a great piece of ART,wish to visit.Any one who can forward its reliable history.Loved it.

    On 11 Dec while on outstation vacation in Delhi, we decided for divine tourism by visiting the Akshardham temple in Delhi. On multiple recommendations we timed our entry around 4:00 pm and not to mention all electronic gadgets and eatables were kept out in car.

    For some reason even pen and paper are not allowed to be taken in temple !!! Even US embessay doesn’t have such tigther restriction. Security checks are very good.

    Entry to Akshardham is free and temple structures are very pleasing with detailed artwork. Inspired by the grandeur of main temple and entry hall we bought plenty of DVD’s and information material on the temple.

    We really enjoyed the beautiful ambience and main temple and further decided to enjoy other offerings as well and thats when the problem started …

    By 4:30pm we purchased the Rs.200.00 package ticket covering all the shows. Total expense was Rs 1520.00 ( 7 adults, one kid and two infants were allowed free entry).

    At the payment counter no information was given on sequence and order of the events. Regardless we proceeded to Exhibition Hall (I think its also called as Shahajanand Hall) judging by the time of day and material we had purchased.

    We were asked to queue in line 1 and wait for line 17 & 18 to get over and expect wait time of 1 hour. I was very happy to hear the honest information from security. However when our wait time beyond 5:45 pm (more than 1 hour) we started actively monitoring the steady flow of people from line 18 and 17 . Within next 5 minutes we confirmed that security volunteers were fooling the people waiting in line 1, 2 & 3 and were shamelessly letting new visitors to enter the hall from line 18.

    My uncle questioned the head security of Exhibition hall (VikrantSingh Rathore) who had walkie talkie, but he didnt acknowledge that it was the lack of co-ordination and communication of volunteers which forced 150 people, in line 1 to 3, wait for no proper reason.

    It was chaos as all visitors in line 1 and 2 also got upset and opened the door themselves to claim their right and the entrance of Exhibition hall got packed and crowded. Atmosphere got so charged that Akshardham security forces called for armed police and without trying to understand and control the situation all of them were now in altercation with either of the visitors.

    After 2 hrs of hopelessly waiting for security to bring order, I went to PR office and met Mr Patel. I narrated him whole incident on which I was very inconsiderately told that our money will be refunded this triggered me further and I challenged him that he should act responsibly and visit the entrance of Exhibition hall to witness the chaos. But he shrewdly deflected me to Mr Shastri, who came with us to entrance of Exhibition hall and witnessed the anarchy created by security forces.

    We demanded Mr Shastri to call VikrantSingh Rathor and his aggressive colleagues by means of walkie talkie, but didnt even attempt to announce instead he gave lame excuse that Vikrant’s shift must be over and stood silently next to us.

    On retrospection on entire incident and its analysis is that Mr Patel’s and Mr Shastri’s cold reaction & lack of interest to take responsible action. For them, could be such incidents are of regular occurence (maybe as frequent as every weekend).

    You must be wondering why so much of fury from on 3 hours of ill treatment? Reasons are:
    1) 100 others with family and infants who were mistreated along with us, of which many simply took refund and went out with bitter experience
    2) Second, unwillingness to take right action by Akshardham managers to correct wrong things. Thus demeaning the pious premises of Swami Narayan temple and reducing to status of lithargic government office or museum.
    3) Many honest devotees are brought to Delhi for 2 months duty as security volunteers, for free, and thus possible reason of chaotic co-ordination and thus risking safety of visitors during peak hours.

    After returning to Pune, till 25th Dec 2010, Akshardham Managment Delhi never called back on mobile number I had left on complaint, so I called up on number 011-2201 6688 (control room extension 297), seems as punishment 2/3 security people were marked as absent but no clarity on action relating to any process change for avoiding recurrence of anarchy and to bring orderliness, justful behaviour to visitors.

    Meanwhile I requested Times Of India editors multiple times, via email

    (mytimes-myvoice@timesgroup.com) to print this experience but they are too busy publishing year end sales of Big Bazaar, Samsung, LG, Vijay Sales etc and of course the Times Big Reward by organising Shopping Festival in Pune Engg College Ground, (while important cities of Maharashtra are on terror alert !).

    Though Akshardham Temple is good showcase of India’s art, culture with great landmark of devotion to Swami Narayanji but the gross mismanagment, lack of responsible managers and loose security strongly influence my negative rating of my visit.
