Shree Swaminarayan Temple, Gadhada, Gujarat

Shree Swaminarayan Temple, Gadhada, Botad in Gujarat is one of the most famous temples in the state. The temple was built by Shree Swaminarayan himself and is filled with his memories. People often visit here to commemorate Shree Swaminarayan along with worshipping the other deities.

The place for the construction of the Shree Swaminarayan temple was given by the court of Dada Khachar in Gadhada. The owner of the land, Shri Dada Khachar was a staunch devotee of Shri Swaminarayan. The whole construction of the temple was overseen and done under Shri Swaminarayan in the 1800s. It is also said that he not only did just watch the construction but also took a part in it by helping the workers to lift the stones and mortar.

The shrines of the temple are said to have two stories and three domes, all with excellent intricate detailed carvings. There is a prasadi temple which has the prasadi items of Shri Swaminarayan all kept in a museum for display under the public eye. River Ghelo passes from the south side of the Shree Swaminarayan temple and was the place he used to take his bath along with his disciples. There are also temples of Lord Shiva and Lord Hanuman on the banks of the river, which are also the prasadi temples of Shri Swaminarayan. Here, there is also a big neem tree under which it is said that he gave all his sermons and teachings. This place is hence of great value to the devotees of Shri Swaminarayan.
