On her 23rd birthday, my bachpan ka dost Vibhuti packed us all in her car and took us to Akshardham. We were supposed to drop our greetings to the good Lord above and then what else party. Palak and I actually skipped our breakfast to fully enjoy our lunch. We entered the temple at 1 pm..we came out at 5.30! Obviously me and Palak were rather disturbed while shooting our arrow prayers by certain rumblings in the tummy region.
So on a day you are particularly feeling pious, this is the place to go. Architecture is spellbinding and they have 3 bhavans( Sahajanand Pradarshan,Nilkanth Kalyan Yatra, Sanskruti Vihar) to visit which will take 2.45 hours according to the ticket, and in reality much more. The rush is seen to be believed. They also do not allow cameras, cellphones or handbags even. Here are some pics I found on the net.
