Exhibition Halls of Akshardham Temple

Three permanent exhibition halls have been built to educate the visitor on sacred movement.

Hall 1: Sahajanand
The life of Swaminarayan is described through imaginative shows and settings. The exhibition consists of 'travel in time' through a video show; a fiber-optics cosmos; a miniature amusement of Chhapiya village; 'sound-n-light' shows, and 'Journey through India'.

Hall 2: Sat-Chit-Anand
Sat Chit Anand hall is used to present an IMAX large format film named Mystic India. Mystic India is the first large-format epic on India. Depicting the unbelievable trip of Neelkanth, as Swaminarayan was known in his teenage years, through the heart and soul of India, it rediscovers a land enriched with the wealth of spirituality, culture and wisdom.

This hall once housed an amazing 14-screen multimedia presentation, "Integrovision", to present an exhibition of Vedic philosophy and of man's search for the everlasting truth, through breath-taking imagery. In addition to the presentation, the exhibition also includes a 'Tunnel of Mirrors,' dancing musical fountains and a glass mosaic.

Hall 3: Nityanand
Walk-through dioramas and fiberglass figures exhibits the message of the Ramayana, Mahabharata and Upanishads. The show includes a recreation of a tranquil Gurukul situated in the lap of nature; an audio-animatronics show; an activity of the Hastinapur palace from the Mahabharata; exciting compositions of saint-poets; and an exhibition on 'Harmony of religions of the world '.
