What You'll Do

  • Visit Swaminarayan Akshardham Temple, the world’s largest comprehensive Hindu temple epitomizing 10,000 years of Indian culture

Overview
On this full-day guided tour, visit Gurudwara Bangla Sahib, the most prominent Sikh gurdwara or Sikh house of worship and walk through the city streets as you make your way to Lotus Temple meditation hall. Lastly, visit Swaminarayan Akshardham Temple.
What to Expect
The tour starts with a hotel or Delhi Airport pick-up at 9:00am for a guided temple tour in Delhi. Visit Gurudwara Bangla Sahib, the most prominent Sikh gurdwara, or Sikh house of worship. The Gurudwara in New Delhi holds a special historical significance apart from the religious aspects. The grounds include the temple, a kitchen, a large pond, a school, and an art gallery.

After Bangla Sahib, visit Lotus Temple or Bahai Temple (closed on Monday). The Lotus Temple, located in New Delhi, is a Bahai House of Worship completed in 1986. It has a striking though plain central hall where you can meditate. The hall is 34.27 meters high and set among beautiful gardens. The temple is at its most exuberant best when the sun dazzles these lotus petals. Lunch will be provided at one of the best local restaurant at 1:00pm.

After Lunch, you will visit Swaminarayan Akshardham Temple (closed on Monday) in New Delhi, epitomizing 10,000 years of Indian culture in all its breathtaking grandeur, beauty, wisdom, and bliss. The Swaminarayan Akshardham complex was built in only five years through the blessings of HDH Pramukh Swami Maharaj of the Bochasanwasi Shri Akshar Purushottam Swaminarayan Sanstha (BAPS) and the colossal devotional efforts of 11,000 artisans and thousands of BAPS volunteers. This is the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s largest comprehensive Hindu temple. The complex was inaugurated on 6 November 2005.

Then indulge in some shopping in the city. Evening shopping in Delhi can be daunting if you don’t know where to go and how to get there. India’s capital city is among the most exciting places to buy textiles (fabric as well as ready-to-wear clothes), jewellery, shoes, bags, leather, carpets, handicrafts, traditional and contemporary Indian art, and curios. After a memorable day, return back to your hotel or your desired destination in Delhi at 7:00pm.
