Mandir Dome and Flag :: May 26, 2008
Mandir Dome and Flag    (click for previous picture)
I had a great day at the one and only Doors Open site I managed to get to this year - although I still managed 150 pictures! This is the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir. The Doors Open web site describes it as:
    The Mandir is a masterpiece of architectural design and workmanship, complete with towering pinnacles, glistening domes and ornate marble pillars, created in an extraordinary tradition that dates back many millennia. Built according to the principles of ancient Indian Shilpshastras, no structural steel was used in the construction. Over 6000 tons of intricately hand-carved marble, limestone, sandstone and wood have been assembled to create an environment perfect for prayer, meditation and inspiration.
