The glorious, multicoloured, wood-carved Swaminarayan Temple, in the old city, was built in 1822 as the first temple of the Swaminarayan Hindu sect. Followers believe the sect’s founder, Swaminarayan (1781–1830), was the supreme being. The daily Heritage Walk starts here at 8am and usually coincides with worship at the temple, with believers’ passion on full display.
