The Structure
Akshardham is built of pink Rajasthani sandstone and Italian marble. Its plethora of intricately carved gods and goddesses makes it the largest hand-carved structure in the world. The Yogi Hraday Kamal is a lotus-shaped (when viewed from above) garden hewn with large stones having quote engravings of Shakespeare, Martin Luther, Swami Vivekananda to Swaminarayan himself. The life of the saint and his preachings are depicted in the legion of museums with hi-tech instrumentations like robotics, dioramas, Delhi's first and only large format screen and what not. Don't miss out the third hall where visitors can board beatific peacock boats and sail in the artificial lake through the 10,000 years of Indian history. India's largest step well, Yagnapurush Kund takes you into the deep crevasse where a musical fountain awaits you mesmerizing lights.

The power of ancient beliefs aggrandized with modern technology is what this magnanimous structure stands for. Inaugurated only in 2005, our tour parcels include a trip to this spectacular emblem of religion and modernism.
