SUNDAY’S SPECIAL SPOT – AKSHARDHAM TEMPLE

Very recently India has loosened its procedures for gaining Visas. Visas on arrival are being phased in for the citizens of over 180 countries. You can read about it in The Times of India. To celebrate I have chosen India as today special spot for travel inspiration.

Located in the city of Delhi is the relatively new but nonetheless stunning Akshardham Temple. Housed on 90 acres of land, the temple is designed in the ancient Hindu architectural style. It celebrates thousands of years of Indian tradition, spirituality and culture. One can spend hours discovering its beauty in the form of gardens, boat rides, fountains, monuments and even film. Blended with old and new, the Swaminarayan Akshardham was opened in November 2005.
