Open to one and all, the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir was inaugurated in August of 2007 after only 17 months of construction time utilizing 1.3 Million volunteer hours. The Mandir is comprised of 3 types of stone (Turkish Limestone, Italian marble, and Indian pink sandstone). More than 34,000 individual pieces were carved by hand in India, shipped to the USA and assembled in Lilburn like a giant 3-D puzzle.

One of the most beautiful temple in Atlanta, I love going to this place at free time. A water body just in front of the temple makes it unique. Love to spend time here. The hotel restaurant "Shayona", serves authentic Gujarati food as well.

I highly recommend getting the $5 audio tour. It is set up in stations with a little written explanation as well. There is a security gate at the entrance. We just told them we were there for the tour, he took our name, and waved us in. The carvings are so detailed it's almost overwhelming. Worshippers stopped in. Socks are... More

I was surprised that there was such an amazing Hindu Temple in the Atlanta area. I don't think they advertise but then again it is a religious place of worship. This is a must see if you are in the area. The temple is amazing and the story behind it even more so. More than 34,000 individual pieces hand carved... More

This is free although if you go inside there is a donation basket. How amazingly beautiful this temple is, definitely worth a visit! It was shipped to Georgia in pieces and reassembled like a giant 3D puzzle. Amazing carvings and architecture! Inside photos are not allowed and you must take your shoes off and store them in a wall of... More

We didn't know what to expect but were blown away. This was a very beautiful place. We did the audio tour for $5 which was well worth it. Would like to have taken pics inside the temple to remember it by but they request you don't so I respected that and understand. We learned some about Hinduism. It's always good... More

If you're looking for something different to do while in Atlanta, this temple is worth the visit. We arrived to watch Arti ceremony at 11:15am. We didn't get the audio tour but things are very well labeled around the building. The grounds of the temple are peaceful. Sitting by the reflecting pool with the temple in view is just so... More
