Cover: BAPS Mandir

Another of Atlanta's 'best-kept-secrets' is the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Lawrenceville, Georgia, near the intersection of Lawrenceville Highway and Rockbridge Road. A mandir is a Hindu place of worship and this one is one of the most stunning buildings I've ever seen...ever!

One of the amazing things about this Mandir is that it's open to the public...and not just the grounds. The grounds are open every day and three times a day the sacred shrines within are open. To gain access you will need to show a photo ID at the main gate and you will need to remove your shoes when going into the shrines.

Photographs are not permitted inside (remember, it's a place of worship), but you may make all the photos you want outside (there are signs posted marking the areas where photos are not permitted).
