The genesis of Akshardham making lies in the wish expressed by Brahmaswarup Yogiji Maharaj in 1968, "A mandir be built on the banks of the Yamuna." His wish was fulfilled through the efforts and divine blessings of his successor and present spiritual master of BAPS, HDH Pramukh Swami Maharaj. A brief presentation of the events of the construction and countdown phases of Swaminarayan Akshardham is presented through a series of photographs.
