Temple – BAPS Junagadh
Shree Swaminarayan Temple is a loved Hindu temple arranged at the Dipanjali territory of Junagadh. It is one of the significant BAPS Mandirs in Gujarat and among the top spots to visit in BA. Situated on Jawahar Road, Shri Swaminarayan Mandir is committed to Lord Swaminarayan - a Hindu holy person, yogi, austere, and the organizer of Swaminarayan Sampraday. This temple was requested to be worked by Lord Swaminarayan himself, the originator of the Swaminarayan Sampraday. The land for this temple was talented by Jinabhai, Darbar of Panchala of King Hemant Singh. The establishment stone for the temple was laid by Gunatitanand Swami in 1826 AD while the development of this temple was directed by Brahmanand Swami. On May 1, 1828 AD, Swaminarayan himself introduced Shri Ranchhodrai and Trikamrai in the internal sanctum, Radharaman Dev and Harikrishna Maharaj in the eastern wing and Siddheswar Mahadev, Parvati, Ganesha, and Nandishwar in the western side. The Mughal Subba Bahadur Khan paid an individual visit to the spot on this event. Swaminarayan named Gunatitanand Swami as the first Mahant, who served in this part for more than 40 years. The Swaminarayan temple has an outline of 278 feet and has incredible architecture with 5 towers and numerous figures. The mandir was worked with the pink stone of Rajasthan. The feel of the mandir is extremely quiet and tranquil, encompassed by trees and rich greenery and slopes add to the eternity of the Temple. For otherworldly people who are passionate in after and supplicating before God, this spot is downright eminent happiness.
