The credit of building the famous Akshardham Temple goes to an organization called BAPS, which stands for Bochasanwasi Shri Akshar Purushottam Swaminarayan Sanstha. The spiritual head of BAPS, Pramukh Swami Maharaj, played a key role in overseeing the making of the temple.

There is also an exquisite garden in the Akshardham temple complex in the shape of lotus and therefore is also, known as the Lotus Garden. When seen from above, it looks like a Lotus made up of large stones where quotes from Shakespeare, Martin Luther, Swami Vivekananda and other eminent figures are engraved.
