It was a genuine stunner with so many brilliant paintings related to mythology as well as the Swami Narayan sect. The front door itself demands attention span of over 20 minutes. There is no dress code or restrictions based on religion (apparently). A must visit for anyone visiting Mombasa

Take at least a hour to visit this Temple. The paintings are amazing, the rooms are amazing. When there is something to celebrate than also visit the room where the ladies do make the cakes, flowers, food. It is so beautiful colored.

Amazing how beautifull this temple is. We were lucky as they were decorating for the celebration. Looking and reading all the paintings with descriptions took us almost 1 1/2 hour. Next time we will go back again.
