BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha is the organization building the temple. Pujya Brahmaviharidas Swami, director of the BAPS Hindu Mandir, is supervising the mega project.

The hand-carved temple is being built according to the ancient Hindu scriptures ‘Shilpa shastras’, Sanskrit scriptures of architecture and sculpture. The intricate carvings show the rich history and culture of India and include Arabic symbols such as horses, camels and oryx. The monumental work of the artisans represents key moments from the Indian epics Ramayana, Mahabharata and other narratives from Hindu scriptures and mythology.

The 108-foot-tall temple, hailed as a “spiritual oasis for global harmony,” is expected to last more than 1,000 years. The temple will open to the world on February 14 with a “Festival of Harmony.” More details about the opening ceremony and registration can be found by downloading the Festival of Harmony app or visiting https://festivalofharmony.ae.
