Happy Diwali ya’ll. Went over to BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Lilburn GA yesterday for the fireworks. It’s the largest Hindu temple outside of India and stunningly beautiful.
From their website: “The BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir was inaugurated in August of 2007 after only 17 months of construction time utilizing 1.3 million volunteer hours. The Mandir is comprised of 3 types of stone (Turkish Limestone, Italian marble, and Indian pink sandstone). More than 34,000 individual pieces were carved by hand in India, shipped to the USA and assembled in Lilburn like a giant 3-D puzzle.”
