“Akshardham” means the divine abode of God. The temple is a humble tribute to Bhagwan Swaminarayan theavatars, devas and great sages of Hinduism which attracts almost all tourists who visit New Delhi. The traditionally styled complex was inaugurated on 6th November 2005. The complex features an Abhisheka Mandap, Sahaj Anand water show, a thematic garden and three exhibitions namely Sahajanand Darshan (Hall of Values), Neelkanth Darshan, and Sanskruti Darshan.
