Akshardham – Water and Light Show

Akshardham is a Hindu Temple of sandstone having intricate carvings, in a huge complex (23acres). The temple is a tribute to Swaminarayan, his life, and his teachings.

A breathtaking 45 minutes presentation is organized here after the sunset using water, multi-color laser, water jets, flames, and live actors

I am a big fan of Akshardham’s water and light show and recommend it to each and everybody.
