About Akshardham

Akshardham, also known as Swaminarayan Akshardham, is an elaborate Hindu temple and cultural campus designed as a place of devotion, learning and peace, located near the Yamuna River in New Delhi. It exhibits artefacts, spiritual objects and artwork reflecting hundreds of years of Indian and Hindu culture, together with a water show, themed garden and temple built according to the Vastu and Pancharatra shastra texts.

The word Akshardham translates as “the divine abode of God”, and it was built by 8,000 volunteers from across the world as a tribute to Bhagwan Swaminarayan, the central figure of what has become known as Swaminarayan Hinduism. The complex’s exhibitions are divided into three parts, the Sahajanand Darshan, or Hall of Values, which displays incidents from Swaminarayan’s life and portrays his messages of nonviolence and compassion. It also contains the Neelkanth Darshan, which is an IMAX film detailing the early life of Swaminarayan and his seven-year pilgrimage, while Sanskruti Darshan is a cultural boat ride which takes visitors through 10,000 years of Indian history using life-size robotics. The highlight is undoubtedly the Akshardham Mandir temple which was built according to Hindu architectural practices and features intricately carved sandstone and marble work. Beneath its central dome sits a statue of Swaminarayan seated in the abhayamudra position and surrounded by images of Hindu Gurus in devotional poses. At night Akshardham’s Yagnapurush Kund fountain displays a musical show detailing the circle of life, while the Premvati Ahargruh food court offers vegetarian cuisine within a restaurant modelled on Maharashtra’s Ajanta and Ellora Caves. The complex also includes the Bharat Upavan garden which is lined with bronze sculptures of prominent figures like Mahatma Gandhi, while the sunken garden of Yogi Hraday Kamal has large stones engraved with quotes from Shakespeare, Martin Luther King and Swaminarayan himself.

Akshardham is served by its own subway station, located on New Delhi’s blue line, from where it’s just a short walk to the entrance of the complex. It’s also easily accessed by numerous public bus routes or private rickshaw.

The idea for the Akshardham complex emerged back in 1968 as a vision of the Swaminarayan religious head at the time, Yogiji Maharaj. The land was finally secured in 2000, and a puja blessing was performed by Yogiji Maharaj’s successor before it was officially opened in 2005.
