New Swaminarayan Temple, Bhuj

This video has for you the new Swaminarayan Temple also known as Swaminarayan Mandir in Bhuj, Gujarat state of India. The shrine was constructed by Swaminarayan, the founder of Swaminarayan Sampraday.

The temple was completely destroyed in an earthquake on Januray 26 2001. Afterwards a new temple was constructed near that shrine which is very huge and made out of gold and marble.

The idols of Nar Narayan and Swaminarayan in the form of Hari Krishna were removed from the old shrine and new ones along with those of Radha Krishna Swaminarayan were installed.
