Shri Swaminarayan Mandir

June 30, 2019

Shri Swaminarayan Mandir is a beautiful Hindu temple that I only recently discovered while driving home from work. I've never been to any sort of temple before and had to double check the guidelines before visiting (i.e shoulders and knees have to be covered, shoes need to be removed, etc.). As ornate and elaborate as the architecture looked on the outside, it was the inside of the temple that really made me speechless. Photos weren't allowed, but in all of my travels I don't think I've ever stepped into such an awe-inspiring space (imagine all of the intricate carvings from the outside, but made out of white marble). It was gorgeous and definitely worth the visit!
