Full description
Start your journey with the hotel pick-up in a private cab at your desired time. Drive to the Akshardham temple where architects have achieved the zenith of carving to induce life in every piece of stone. Take a post visit to the Akshardham Temple to see the Exhibition Section comprised of 3 parts. The first is Sahajanand Darshan: Hall of Values - Experience timeless messages of Hindu culture presented in this exhibition. It contains a series of exhibits, each one giving a fresh experience, a new message and a novel presentation. These exhibits portray values like non‐violence, perseverance, prayers, morality, and family harmony using different multimedia technologies like audio‐animatronic figures, immersive projections and 3‐D dioramas. The second is Neelkanth Darshan: Large Format Film - At Akshardham’s giant screen theater, visitors become engrossed in Neelkanth Yatra. Here, on a screen 85 feet wide and 65 feet tall, the audience follows a young Neelkanth Varni on an epic trek across the Indian subcontinent. From the icy peaks in the northern Himalayas to the warm beaches of southern India, follow Neelkanth as he traverses 12,000 kilometers across the length and breadth of India. Be reminded of the value of sacrifice and service, the wisdom of the eternal soul, and the power of faith.  Lastly, the Sanskruti Darshan:Cultural Boat Ride - Board a boat and sail through thousands of years of ancient Indian history. Experience the lifestyle of the Vedic era. Pass through the oldest university and watch an eye surgery happening more than a thousand years ago. This 12 minute boat ride presents some of India’s important contributions to the world.

Fantastic full sensory experience of Hindu and Indian history!

Way more than I had expected, utterly marvelous experience. My guide was so knowledgeable and helpful, as well as friendly and fun. The temple was so beautiful but that was the frosting on a very delicious cake. The story telling using multiple mixed medias was excellent and the light and water show was unique and beautiful again with excellent story telling. Don't miss this!

Abbiamo visitato l'Akshardham nell'orario pomeridiano per assistere anche allo spettacolo di luci e suoni. La nostra guida Kajal è stata davvero speciale, ci ha accompagnato lungo tutto il percorso alla scoperta della vita di Swaminarayan e della costruzione dello stesso Akshardham con gentilezza e professionalità, davvero una ragazza fantastica. Il tempio è meraviglioso sia di giorno che di notte quando grazie all'illuminazione assume l'attenzione magica. L'energia che si percepisce in mezzo a così tanta gente è stata fortissima. Anche il nostro autista Santosh è stato particolarmente gentile, auto molto pulita e comoda. Grazie all'organizzazione di Go City Adventures Bahut Bahut Shukrya
