The number of followers of swaminarayan faith is increasing day by day and Gujrat is the place where Sahajanand swami had settled. Thus this place has a lot of Swaminarayan followers.

The mandir is embellished with some stunning carved pillars, magificent archways, admirable balconies and delightful idols. It is one of the significant attraction for visitors to Bharuch. This mandir is under the management and administration by BAPS.

This dazzling architecture is more than a temple for people of Bharuch as this place is an ideal spot for a great family weekend.

History of Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Bharuch

With the increase in the number of followers and with the progression of Satsang over the years, it became necessary to have a shikharbaddh mandir to pay homage to the almighty. Thus one of the devotee, Shri Motibhai M. Patel gave his land to the BAPS and after taking in some more land, the mandir project was initiated on the 18-acre site. On 13 January 1998, the stone was laid for the shikharbaddh mandir which was led by Pramukh Swami Maharaj .
