Akshardham is a must visit Marvel in Delhi

BAPS Swamy Narayan Sanstha’s Akshardham is a magnificent architectural marvel situated very close to Delhi in the Delhi-Noida highway. It is a Hindu temple but no restrictions as such. Anyone can visit the temple without any entry fee. To its credit, it is the temple built in India after a long gap of 800 years, in complete stone without use of concrete or steel. Only interlocks were used to construct this temple. Some 7000 sculptors worked for some 5 years to carve the sculptures on the rocks. Almost all the temple is constructed with Pink sandstone.
There are a number of landscape designs which please the visitors. The only disadvantage for an average visitor is that the Digital Cameras or Handycams are not allowed inside the temple, mainly due to the Security reasons (Mostly in all Hindu temples in India). But if you wish you can have a photo made by the dedicated professional photographers appointed by the Temple committee.
You have also the options to buy some video CDs at a reason…
