Akshardam has become an unusual attraction of Gandhinagar with the famous temple of "Swaminarayan Sect" - the richest sect in the world. It is a unique cultural complex built in memory of Lord Swaminrayan. It is a miracle worked by the service and devotion of thousands of volunteers and is an intricately carved, majestic monument of 6000 tons of pink sand stone awash with spiritual stillness. It is a place of education, entertainment and enlightenment. Inspired by H. D. Pramukh Swami Maharaj, Akshardham is a miracle worked by the service and devotion of thousands of volunteers. The entire monument was built without the use of steel. Besides a 7 feet gold leafed idol of Lord Swaminarayan and his holy relics, there are three exhibitions on Indian Culture with light and sound shows, a multimedia show and an animatronics show. Games, rides and food refreshments are other attractions of Akshardham.
