  • Beautiful temple, but very selfish trust
  • Ignoring a bit of VIP culture, the holy temple with the awesome environment and structure gives you immense feeling and closelyness to spiritual powers. Temple is closed at around 12 to 3 afternoon time, but not closed for all, they allow people with VIP pass to enter the temple, that's the only thing that disguised me. Otherwise overall management of Trust is superb. Do visit the temple... Feel the spiritual vibes... Ignore the VIP culture. They donate, so they are given special treatment which is a bit odd considering GOD doesn't make such discrimination. Well that's what all middle class people have to face in the world everywhere and unfortunately it also happens in temple as well. But remember... Do not be angry with the GOD... Swaminarayan Bhagvan doesn't make those rules... His blessings are equal for everyone... It's the management, who decides such things... So please don't judge the GOD or the religion 🙏
