About Swaminarayan Akshar Temple

History

The BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha is a spiritual, volunteer-driven organization dedicated to improving society through individual growth by fostering the Hindu ideals of faith, unity, and selfless service.

The city of Rajkot has a special link with the Swaminarayan Sampradaya, for it was in Rajkot, at the Kothi Compound, that Lord Swaminarayan met the then British Governor of Bombay, Sir John Malcolm on 26 February 1830

.

Many years later, Rajkot served as the base where Brahmaswarup Shastriji Maharaj stayed while studying Sanskrit under the tutelage of Jivanlal Shastri. And Rajkot was where the first historic meeting between Shastriji Maharaj and Yogiji Maharaj took place. Besides these milestones, numerous important and special landmarks and locations connect Rajkot with the Swaminarayan Sampradaya.

The roots of the Bochasanwasi Shree Akshar Purushottam Swaminarayan Sanstha in Rajkot were planted when a small mandir dedicated to Akshar and Purushottam was built. With the spirited and selfless assistance of Yogiji Maharaj, Krishnaji Ada and other sadhus and devotees, Shastriji Maharaj taught Lord Swaminarayan’s pure philosophy of Akshar and Purushottam to many. The date of the murti pratishtha was set for 26 November 1998, the day before Swamishri’s 78th birthday. A week-long celebration was scheduled from 20–27 November 1998 to commemorate these auspicious occasions.

The main structure houses three idols, including that of Lord Swaminarayan. It’s taken care of by Swaminarayan Gurukul, an organization that aims to promote ‘true and good education’, started way back in the year 1947.
