BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Atlanta
It’s time for Tuesday Travel, and I have only a short post to share today. I’m in full-swing with the blog schedule, but I did have to pick up my daughter from school today. The nurse called me from the clinic to tell me that my daughter had told her she was “coughing all day, her legs were shaking, and she was shy.” Not sure what she means by shy, but she is resting comfortably now and doesn’t seem to be in any danger of dying. I have a sneaking suspicion she might have been faking, but I’ll give her a pass. Everyone needs an off-day, and as long as it doesn’t become a habit, I’m okay with it.
If you’re ever in Atlanta, travel to the outskirts towards Lilburn, Georgia, and you’ll be rewarded with a glimpse of the gorgeous BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir. What is unique and a little odd is that there is nothing else like it in Georgia, and if you visit the surrounding area, you’ll see there is nothing special. In the midst of the commercialization and along Lawrenceville Highway, this beautiful Hindu temple jumps out and commands attention.
We stopped in at the Walgreens write next door on Thanksgiving day, and I was able to capture a few photos of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in the parking lot. I neglected to notice the many “no photo” signs running along the front fence, but there was no sign in sight from where I was taking pics. I wish this gate hadn’t been standing in the way and I’d gotten better shots, but alas, I couldn’t.
How about you? Do you have any remarkable landmarks near your home that seem to be out of place amongst the ordinary? If so, tell me in the comments.
That’s all I have for today, but in the meantime…
