Lonely Planet review

The only reason for visiting is the spectacular Akshardham Temple , belonging to the wealthy Hindu Swaminarayan group. Built by nearly 1000 artisans, it is an elaborately carved building constructed out of 6000 tonnes of pink sandstone and surrounded by manicured gardens. Note that cameras and mobile phones are not allowed into the compound.
