The Most Majestic Place Of Worship
I finally made it to the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, a beautiful Hindu temple in Robbinsville, New Jersey. The first time I came, they were still closed due to COVID, and I was disappointed that they were not letting visitors in. This time, I called before driving over an hour and asked if visitors were allowed back. They were back open and ready for the public.
I dream of visiting Cambodia one day and seeing the beautiful architecture and history, but until I can visit, I will stay local.
The temple is a spiritual oasis for Hindus and non-Hindus alike. the temple was built in 2014, the largest Hindu temple in the United States. The temple stands at an impressive 42,000 square feet and is built with 6,000 tons of Italian Carrara marble and Turkish Limestone.
