Akshardham Delhi- Providing A view Into The Vedic Times

Our next destination in New Delhi was the Akshardham Temple situated on the Noida Road in New Delhi. This complex displays the millennia of traditional Hindu and Indian Culture. The place that was established by Pramukh Swami Maharaj attracts nearly 70 percent of the visitors who come to Delhi. Situated on the banks of river Yamuna, the place looks beautiful when lit up at night.

The place that has been constructed by around 7000 volunteers is around 41 metres tall and 109 metres long. The monument from outside appears to be the blend of various architectural styles and is constructed of white Pink Sandstone and Carrara marble of Italy. As I entered this place, I was astounded to see the way the place was designed. Consisting of more than 20,000 sculptures and nine domes, the place is the best example of architectural magnificence.

The monument’s central dome looks beautiful and is crafted with utmost care. Further moving across the monument I could experience some exhibitions that were organised. Some of them include the Hall of values which showcases events such as robotics and dioramas. The part that I liked the most was the theatre section, where I was thrilled to see a large screen of about 85 mm. This screen played a 40-minute short film that made all the visitors get a chance to experience the seven-year pilgrimage made by the founder of the complex during his teen years.

Another fascinating feature of this complex is the 15-minute boat ride that helps people go through 10,000 years of rich Indian heritage. Through this short journey, I along with others was able to know about the contributions Vedic people made to the fields of science and technology. Moving on, some of the other prominent attractions of the place are the musical fountain and garden of India. Visit to this architectural wonder proved to be a great learning as well as a fun moment. My family enjoyed this place and gained knowledge about various facts too.
