    Magnificent! The place is out of the world. I can assure you will be mind-blown by the architectural magnificence. The place is epic, clean, well secured. There is this Water Show at 7:45 PM (IST) which was so great! Must watch if you go to this place.... The entry is free but you are not supposed to carry any baggage or mobile/cameras....So its better keep them in your car.

    Wonderful and marvellous Marble stone created unbelievable artistic skill is still alive in our Great Country. I found no word to express the nature of beautiful construction. And also maintained with full safe and most discipline way. I visited twice during 2007 and 2012. Each one of Indian must visit to this excellent monument irrespective of religion and cast.

    Magnificent temple and serene. One of the best place for coming across to spirituality. This is must visit place in Delhi. One can reach here by any means of transport. There is metro station for Akshardham temple on Blue Line towards Noida City Centre. There is ample space for parking.

    Architecture is impressive. Worth visiting. Take care of following while visiting. 1.mobiles, bags, bottles, food are not allowed inside. Better keep in vehicle you take if u have one. 2.hotels are available but a bit expensive. 3.water is worth the most. 4.will not advice to strictly watch the exhibition. It is hectic, costly. 250 per adult(combo including water show). Water show 80per adult. 5.exhibition goes on for 2 hours making u wait in long queues. 6.ticket for exhibition ends at 5 pm. But water show is still sold. 7.Better visit in night as you won't miss light effects of temple n water show. Enjoyed my visit.

    Boat ride & lighting fountain water show are super rocking infact world class. Food quantity is very less as compared to price. Que management is poor at exhibition & movie line waiting. 5-7 hrs required for complete trip. Sat & Sun are over crowded, Monday it's closed. Ample parking, can take metro as well. Camera, phones not allowed inside. Entry is free but exhibition & shows total cost is 250 per head. Wheel chair entry for disabled is there.

Where to stay in New Delhi

New Delhi contains some of India's finest and most popular hotels, catering to business travelers and well-heeled tourists. For budget accommodations, consider the neighborhood of Paharganj, just west of the New Delhi railway station. Noisy and packed with peddlers of every kind, the area offers some of the least expensive rooms located relatively near major attractions. Guesthouses serve as the city's best mid-range option, with new ones constantly springing up to satisfy the growing number of visitors. Always call or visit the website in advance to check on prices and amenities included.
