An iconic element of traditional Hindu temples are the colossus towers (Sikhar) that adorn the roof of the building and signify the position of Lord SwaminarayanBapa Swamibapa within the Mandir. These towers are topped with ornate golden caps (kalash) and ceremonial flags. On the holy day of Gurupoonam, the kalash Ceremony (topping off ceremony) for the mandir was performed.
