Located on Delhi's outskirts is the mammoth and elaborate Akshardham Temple, a recently built structure (inaugurated in 2005) made of pink sandstone and white marble. Part of the Hindu Swaminarayan group, this extraordinary temple reflects traditional Orissa, Gujarati, Mughal and Rajasthani architectural elements and has exquisite domes and pillars. It contains around 20,000 carved deities. The Akshardham experience is an enlightening journey through India's glorious art, values and contributions for the progress, happiness and harmony of mankind. It is 10 kms away from the hotel.
