Evening view of Akshardham Temple, New Delhi

Counted among the world’s wondrous houses of worship, Akshardham Temple in New Delhi showcases the blend of technical modernity with traditional architectural styles. Covering an area of over 8,000 square meters, the grandeur and wisdom behind the temple is best when experienced.

Key Attractions:

  • Mandir: Made of pink stones and white marble, the main temple was built without the use of steel. Decorated with domes, carved pillars and 20,000 murtis (statues), it is simply divine.
  • Hall of Values (Sahajanand Pradarshan): The audio-animatronics show conveys the messages of wisdom and the true meaning of living life by practicing – ahimsa or non-violence, vegetarianism, morality and harmony. Each statue appears so real.
  • Giant Screen Film (Neelkanth Yatra): The film revolves around a child yogi, Neelkanth Varni. The screen is over six stories high.
  • Boat Ride (Sanskruti Vihar): One should not miss the boat ride when in Akshardham. This twelve-minute ride will be like a ride into 10,000 years of India’s heritage. From Vedic life to Takshashila and an era of ancient discoveries – you’ll get to experience it all.
  • Musical Fountains (Yagnapurush Kund): The musical fountain show is held in the evening and showcases the interdependency between God, nature and man. Its is an extraordinary experience!
  • Garden of India (Bharat Upvan): Manicured lawns and gardens with bronze statues add on to the charm of the entire complex. Yogihriday Kamal is a special lotus that reflects auspicious sentiments.
  • Abhishek Mandap: Water is poured on to the idol of Neelkanth Varni which is followed by chanting and prayers. Visitors are also allowed to perform the abhishek of the idol.
  • The Sahaj Anand Water Show: The breath-taking shows run for 24 minutes and depict through various intriguing media to show the story from the Kena Upanishad. Multi-colour lasers, underwater flames, video projections and water jets make the show captivating.

very bad for not allow to carry camera inside for taking nice pic.
i think they should cancel this rule coz if we pay for Exhibition Fee and Musical Fountain Fee,then we also need to take a good shot.Otherwise it’s worthless to visit.

Musical Fountain: Rs. 30 (Adults), )Rs. 125 (Senior Citizens), Rs. 20 (Child from 4-11 years), Free (Child Below 4 years) as according to website.
BUT
Senior Citizens rate 25 rather than 125. this is mistake.

The musical fountain has changed. It is now a full-scale water show like in singapore. It is shorter I think but much much better because it has laser and fountains and video projectors and fire also. Ticket price for it has also changed I think.
