Swami Narayan Akshardham Temple (Delhi - India)

The complex features a large central monument crafted entirely of stone, exhibitions on incidents from the life of Swaminarayan and the history of India, an IMAX feature, a musical fountain, and large landscaped gardens.

On 17 December 2007, Michael Whitty, an official world record adjudicator for Guinness World Records, traveled to Ahmedabad, India to present a new world record to Pramukh Swami Maharaj, the spiritual leader of BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha, for the Akshardham complex.

The record was presented for Akshardham as the World’s Largest Comprehensive Hindu Temple

Quote:Angkor Wat combines two basic plans of Khmer temple architecture: the temple mountain and the later galleried temple, based on early South Indian Hindu architecture, with key features such as the Jagati. It is designed to represent Mount Meru, home of the devas in Hindu mythology: within a moat and an outer wall 3.6 kilometres (2.2 mi) long are three rectangular galleries, each raised above the next. At the centre of the temple stands a quincunx of towers. Unlike most Angkorian temples, Angkor Wat is oriented to the west; scholars are divided as to the significance of this. The temple is admired for the grandeur and harmony of the architecture, its extensive bas-reliefs and for the numerous devatas (guardian spirits) adorning its walls.

Pashupatinath temple (पशुपतिनाथ मन्दिर) is the biggest Hindu temple of Lord Shiva in the world located on the banks of the Bagmati river in the eastern part of Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal. The temple served as the seat of national deity, Lord Pashupatinath, until Nepal was secularized. The temple is listed in UNESCO World Heritage Sites list.

Haha! Wisdom, I cannot hide my happiness to have a Hindu posting on here. I hide my enthusiasm for your faith so well!

This is the Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in London:

[Image: Neasden_Temple_-_Shree_Swaminarayan_Hind..._Plant.jpg]

Each block was exported from Italy, shipped to India where they were carved, and then imported to England. It is not known who the sculpters were, as they did their work as an act of worship for God. Not one block was damaged in transit. It is an incredible building, and I was a bit overcome by the atmosphere there, as it was so joyous, which is something I'm not so used to in religious sites. Beautiful, beautiful place. Shame it's in London and not elsewhere in the country!
