Swaminarayan Temple

The brightly coloured Swaminarayan Temple presents a delicate contrast to the many hard-stone mosques in the city. Both the temple and the houses in the courtyard surrounding it are of finely carved wood, with elaborate and intricate patterns typical of the havelis of north and west Gujarat. The temple’s main sanctuary is given over to Vishnu and his consort Lakshmi.
