Spent a few leisurely hours in the very large complex which culminated in the much anticipated water show in the evening. The water show exceeded expectations. The gardens are immaculately landscaped and maintained. The main temple building is quite majestic and the approach is along a walkway with small fountains.

Security is apparently very high, and I had to remove belt, wallet, etc and carry on a tray. No electronic items allowed inside.

Leaving the complex after the show was not a good experience, as the exits are through a series of gates that allow one person to pass through at a time. Strange!

Visited late afternoon and stayed for the water show in the evening.
Amazing temple, beautiful carvings and intricate stonework.
Water/light/laser show was excellent and cost us 80 rupees!
You are not allowed to take bags/phones in and have to queue to place them in storage so leave behind if you can- water bottles allowed.

This is very popular place in Gandhinagar and got global attention due to terrorist attack on it. Very well maintained and neatly kept under enhanced security umbrella which you should know while visiting this place. There is no ticket for the temple but you have to pay for light and Water show separately. Please ensure that you deposit all yours belongings, electronic items including smart watches at counter no 1 and purse or bags at counter no 3 before entering in queue. You can not take photos as no camera is allowed, even mobiles but there is a counter at the entrance which offer photography opportunity for you at nominal cost. Better go in the evening and enjoy Arti. While exiting the temple you will be directed through eateries which offer subsidized food but of great quality. Check before going there about the light show as seldom Maintenance can stop this attraction
