Preview: Open House

When I passed by this building, I thought I was in somewhere in Asia. It just looks like someone brought it here. It is just so white and huge with delicate details. The official name is BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir. This is the first traditional Hindu Mandir outside India. 2,000 tonnes of italian marble and 2,828 tonnes of Bulgarian limestones first shipped to India to be shapped by 1,500 craftmen. Can you believe this? Luckily we will be able to see the inside. They will open the door as a part of Open House on this Sat and Sun.
