BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir

“A Mandir is a place of paramount peace….to realize God”

– Pramukh Swami Maharaj

IMG_5847A Mandir is a Hindu place of Worship. This one is located in Lilburn Georgia, a little way north of Atlanta. A fun and easy trip for staycationers…IMG_5842I had company today. My nieces accompanied me to this temple.

More than 34,000 pieces were hand carved in India and shipped to USA and assembled in 17 months by volunteers.

This is an amazingly peaceful and loving place. Inside there are shrines to spiritual leaders and Deities. We couldn’t photograph inside. I wish I could have though, it is simply amazing. The carving details are fabulous. IMG_5844This is from the outside, it is even more intricate on the interior. IMG_5845They have classes and social gatherings too.

All in all it was an amazing day.IMG_5864
