Metro Atlanta's most spectacular, cultural, arts, and spiritual highlight is also open for tours. The BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir is the largest Hindu Mandir (temple) in the United States. Visitors can tour the Mandir. Open to one and all, the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir was inaugurated in August of 2007 after only 17 months of construction. The Mandir is comprised of Turkish limestone, Italian marble, and Indian pink sandstone. More than 34,000 individual stone pieces were carved by hand in India, shipped to the USA, and assembled in Lilburn like a giant jigsaw puzzle. The Mandir is completely etched with intricate carvings, depicting a mosaic of tales of inspiration, devotion, and historic figures from Hinduism.

Enjoy hours of beauty, peace, and discovery at the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Lilburn – a masterpiece of exquisite Indian design and workmanship.
