BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir

Tour the largest Mandir (Hindu temple) in Georgia.

The BAPS Hindu Mandir (temple) is the largest temple in the Southeast and one of metro Atlanta's most spectacular cultural and architectural highlights. Visitors can tour the temple alone, grab a head set for an audio tour or have a guided tour. Tour highlights include the viewing of the sacred deities and the Aarti Ceremony (depending on time of day). Something folks always find shocking is that there's no structural metal in the entire Mandir—pieces was hand carved in India, shipped to the states, and put together piece-by-piece with a lock-and-key system. Be sure to check out the website for dress restrictions and viewing times and read our Mandir Know Before you Go Guide for tips.

High resolution images and guided tours are available to journalists on assignment.
