Ahmedabad BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Significance:
Bhagwan Swaminarayan first came to Amdavad as Nilkanth Varni in 1799 and stayed at Lake Kankaria. He visited the city many times, often celebrating the Fuldol festival here. He often bathed in the Sabarmati river, passing by a fruit orchard in the area known as Shahibaug. Lord Swaminarayan built the first mandir of Swaminarayan in the Kalupur area of Amdavad in 1822, installing the images of Nara and Narayan.
Ahmedabad BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir History:
Bhagwan Swaminarayan gave darshan to a devotee, Ashabhai, that a true upasana mandir would soon sprout in Amdavad. It was also Shastriji Maharaj’s desire to build a Temple of Akshar Purushottam in Amdavad. To this end, an old bungalow was purchased in the Shahibaug area, the fruit orchard that had been sanctified by Lord Swaminarayan. The bungalow became a small mandir of Hari and a small image of Lalji Maharaj was installed. On this site, Yogiji Maharaj later built a mandir of 5 towers and fulfilled the wish of his guru.
