The Mandir is a house of God. Shri Swaminarayan Mandir is the traditional Hindu Mandir of stone and marble to be constructed in the Nashik. The images in the temples built by Swaminarayan are the evidence of the priority of Krishna. Shri Swaminarayan temple is like other Hindu temples, have walkways around the central shrine to allow worshipers to circumambulate the shrine. It is decorated with designs and inlaid marble. Swaminarayan propagated that men and women should be separated in temples to allow full concentration on god.
Men do a specified number of prostrations (as decided by themselves). There is great variety in form and nature of the central images, in front of which are gold- or silver-plated doors that open during darshan.
