The students of class XII, accompanied by their teachers Ms Deepa Chugh and Ms Suman Aswal, visited the Akshardham Temple on 18 January 2020. The visit was a customary one to seek the blessings of the Almighty for the imminent CBSE Board exams.

The Akshardham Temple complex is a spiritual and cultural campus dedicated to devotion, learning and harmony. Timeless spiritual messages, vibrant devotional traditions and ancient architecture are echoed in its art and architecture. The complex has a water show, a theme garden, a hall of values, an IMAX film on Swaminarayan’s life and a cultural boat ride which takes the visitor through 10,000 years of Indian history, with animatronics telling stories from the life of Swaminarayan.

The central attraction of the complex is its temple, which is abundantly filled with exquisite statues of deities, flora and fauna etc.

The temple was abuzz with visitors from all over the country. Many foreign tourists could also be seen standing in the queue outside the temple. Upon entering the complex, a sudden tranquility descended upon u

The students were captivated to see the lavish temple carved in pale red sandstone. The sculptures and intricate carvings spoke of our rich culture. The temple itself is a majestic piece of architecture. Here, the students spent quiet moments in reflection and faith.

Later, the students had a sumptuous breakfast in the canteen within the complex and then proceeded to walk through the lush landscape of the complex.

The students explored the Garden of India, 60 acres of thematic gardens adorned with bronze statues representing heroes, warriors, and heroes from Indian history and lore. The verdant green seemed to have a calming effect on our students as they stood in silence, absorbing what they were seeing.

The visit to Akshardham was a spiritually enriching experience and thoroughly satisfying. The students came back filled with new positivity and gratitude, ready to take on the challenge ahead.
