The memorial of Swami Narayan is built with Rajasthan marbles where the 7 feet tall idol of Swami made of gold stands majestically. The statues of those great souls who lived following the foot steps of the Swamiji are all installed around the temple. It took six years to construct the temple. Six thousand tonnes of pink marbles had been used in the construction of the temple. The temple is 108 feet tall, 240 feet long and has a width of 131 feet. Theatre: A film showing the life history and teachings of Swamiji is exhibited in the theatre. The entry fee is Rs. 20 only. While returning back from the temple premises after about four hours, one has the feeling that he/she was in a world that was absolutely different filled with bliss. Among the idols in the temple, Sri Andal of Tamilnadu, author of Tiruppavai and Nachiar Thirumozhi praised as the quintessence of the Vedas and Upanishads has a place. There are sections for Ramayana and Mahabharata scenes. No commercial cinema theatre has so much advanced technicalities as in the theatre in the temple. A section called ‘Premanand’ showing the devotees singing the praise of Swamiji is a class by itself on spirituality.  
  Temple History:
  Sri Swami Narayan was born in Sapia village of Gujarat in the year 1781. He was a ripe soul in his childhood itself showing signs of high standard of true wisdom. He mastered the four Vedas, Upanishads, Bhagwat Gita and such spiritual texts even while he was 7. When he was 10 years old, he delivered a lecture on Visishtadwaita philosophy among the Pundits of Varanasi (Kasi) who greatly appreciated his deep knowledge in the philosophy. Swamiji left his house when he was 11 in search of truth and ultimate reality. He travelled the length and breadth of India, visited every pilgrim centre with a single dhoti on the body. He only walked all the way. Starting from the shrines on the snow-clad Himalayas in the north, he walked to the end of the country in Kanyakumari in the south. In his long journey, he visited Madurai, Rameswaram, and many Kshetras (pilgrim centres). Swamiji was 18 when he returned back to Gujarat. Guru Ramananda Swamy, noticing the ripe wisdom of Shri Narayan Swami, sent all his disciple to him and named him Sahajananda. Many scholars coming to know of the greatness of Swami Sahajananda became his disciples. The disciple strength grew in numbers including about 3000 Sadhus. Swamiji showed all compassion towards the poor and underprivileged including those who committed crimes. He taught them the futility of being slaves to material things and the benefits of being pure and honest in life. He met them and consoled them. Swamiji turned many in Gujarat to the path of righteousness and made them happy. This is a temple raised in memory of this great Mahatma.
