I visited the Akshardham temple in Delhi. I think it's a wonderful place everyone should visit. Akshardham temple has been made by a charitable trust. It extends for 25 hectares of lush green area and is surrounded on three sides by river Yamuna. The architecture and design of the Akshardham Temple is just wonderful. Inside the Akshardham temple is composed of pure white marble. In the living room is a beautiful example of the great work of artists with thousands of bells hanging in exile. In the outer periphery of the Akshardham temple is 108 goumukhs discharging water from its mouth.
In the area of the Akshardham temple garden has statues of the great warriors of India as Ram, Lakshmana, Sita and Draupadi, the Rath in the middle of the garden, with eight horses is truly remarkable. In one corner, the Akshardham temple has a collection of unleashing ancient India and its history in a musical show held in the temple in which music is played along with the sources. Akshardham is a lasting impression since I've seen.
