स्वामिनारायण अक्षरधाम) in Robbinsville, New Jersey, U.S. is a spiritual-cultural complex. It is absolutely fascinating Hindu temple open to one and all .Only a segment of the temple has been inaugurated. A complex with Indian heritage ,history and culture is still under construction. The BAPS Swaminarayan temple, is a denomination of the Swaminarayan branch of Hinduism. The mandir is built of hand-carved Italian carrara marble, Turkish limestone and Indian pink stone. The mandir was constructed according to guidelines outlined in ancient Vedas, or Hindu scriptures. A must visit for anyone !!!
I love the peaceful environs..
I have been unable to post pictures of my hometown for the past one month. Partially due to the fact that I was travelling to India for 3 weeks and on return it has been very hectic at home and work.
In the meanwhile I did post some pictures of my trip to India.Plan to be back posting pictures of my hometown starting this coming Monday. Watch out. Until then enjoy some of these random
photos taken every now and then …
Sometimes I just sit back and just observe. This way I learn a lot more.
The empty boat is flooded with sunrise. Sometimes we need a break in a beautiful place.ALONE, to figure out everything.
This was my first visit to Mumbai as a grown up adult. My last visit was in 1982 when I was very young. I remember having arguments with my cousins from Mumbai how Delhi was superior to it. But seeing is believing. Though I do have a soft corner for Delhi , yet the place that has caught my attention now is definitely Mumbai. It is a parallel version of NYC. There is a strange source of urgency in the air and people are nice and friendly. there is a vibrancy that is missing in Delhi. I am planning a trip already with my kids sometime next year. Here are a few memorable pictures from the trip.
