Welcome To Temple-Land

These days it isn’t enough to open a temple and expect the people will follow. In Delhi the creators of a new temple has added a little Hollywood pizzaz. “The creators of the new Swaminarayan Akshardham temple complex that towers over east Delhi thought to include several features not commonly found in Hindu architecture, including an indoor boat ride, a large-format movie screen, a musical fountain and a hall of animatronic characters that may well remind us that, really, it’s a small world after all. There are even pink (sandstone) elephants on parade.”
