A Thread on Swami Narayan Temple Which is in Bhuj , Gujarat 🛕
Before That lets First understand what exactly these Temples are :
Swaminarayan Temples in India are based on the philosophy of their founder the Swaminarayan and the philosophy is known as Swaminarayan Sampraday.
The temples are beautifully constructed with the primary deity and worship being Lord Krishna.
There are many beautiful Temples in our country and not only that they do Have many temples in abroad too .
So ,Let me give you info on Swaminarayan Temple in Bhuj, Its indeed an architectural marve!
Lord Shree Swaminarayan was attending the famous fuldol festival. During the festival devotees from Bhuj met Lord Swaminarayan and requested him to construct a temple in Bhuj.
So Lord Shree Swaminarayan asked Vaishnavananand Swami to proceed with a team of saints to Bhuj and construct a temple there so as in 1822 the plan was initiated and within a span of 1 year temple was built.
The manifestations of the Lord at the central dome, under the eastern dome were seated Radha-Krishna Dev, Hari-Krishna Maharaj and under the western dome Ghanshyam Maharaj. Roop Chowki, the main square of the inner temple housed the images of Ganapati bapa and Hanumanji.
But due to unfortunate catastrophe, Gujarat Earthquake of January 2001 destroyed much of the city of Bhuj, including the side of the temple facing north which was built by Lord Shree Swaminarayan. But Miraculously the divine idols remained as they were, without any damage.
Due to the the utmost damages to the areas around
It was decided that the idols would be housed inside a new grand temple. It was collaboratively resolved to construct this new temple a short distance away from the original site.
So The new Temple was constructed as per traditional Vedic architectural methods, on the banks of Hamirsar Lake. The first brick installation ceremony in 2003, it has taken 7 years for its completion.
The new Temple has the peripheries, which are beautifully carved into the icy marble of Makrana and Ambaji with a Touch of Heavenly spirit basically temple is constructed around 35,000 sq.ft and has 7 high touching pinnacle around.
So Thats all about this Marvelous Structure its indeed fascinating and eye catching

Omkareshwar Jyotirlinga which is in Khandwa,Madhya Pradesh
Do Read :)
Har Har Mahadev 🙏
Omkareshwar Jyotirling temple is a self appeared (Swayambhu) pillar of light with no beginning and no end. This Temple is one of the most ancient religious sites in India, with links going back to the Ramayana era. Located on the banks of sacred Narmada river.
The name ‘Omkareshwar’ is derived from the sign of OM which is formed when you take an aerial view of the hill which is surrounded by Narmada on all sides and hence, it is called Omkareshwar.
The island which it situated in (Mandhata) also has Om shape structure.

We all chant Ganapati Bappa Morya all the time to sing the praises of Lord Ganesh. But Do you know what the word Morya signify? The word Morya refers to a famous devotee of Lord Ganesh in the fourteenth century called Morya Gosavi, 1/n
Originally from village called Shaligram in Karnataka where his devotion was looked upon as madness!! He travelled and settled in Chinchvad, Pune and invoked the Lord with severe penance. He attained siddhi at Shree Chintamani and his son built the temple to commemorate 2/n
Overwhelmed by Moryaji 's bhakti was blessed by Lord Ganesha to fullfill any of his wish. Morya asked to be remembered forever on this earth whenever anyone remembers his Lord, as his 'Param Bhakt'. Thus this depicts the inseparable relationship between God and his devotee.3/n

Ganga Aarti is the traditional Evening prayer performed daily on the banks of river Ganga. This prayer is done for praising to the River Goddess-Ganga.

Ganga aarti is a spectacular ceremony that takes place everyday in the 3 holy cities of Haridwar, Rishikesh and Varanasi 🙏.
The Aarti is performed everyday at the Dashashwamedh Ghat in Varanasi, Parmarth Niketan Ashram in Rishikesh and Hari-ki-Pauri Ghat in Haridwar at the bank of the holy river Ganga.
The aarti is carried out facing the river. The lamps are lit and circled around by the pandits in a clockwise manner, accompanied by songs in praise of Mother Ganga. The idea is that the lamps acquire the power of the deity.
