Shree Ghanshyam Maharaj - Suvarna Mahotsav, Bhuj

Shree Ghanshyam Maharaj - Suvarna Mahotsav, Bhuj

In Samvat 2017, Fagan Vad 10, Sunday 12 March 1961, Jeevanpran Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa laid the foundation stone of Shree Swaminarayan Mandir, Bhuj. In only a short time, a magnificent Mandir was built, and in Samvat 2018, Vaishakh Sud 13, Thursday 17 May 1962, Jeevanpran Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa performed the installation ceremony of the supreme Lord Shree Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa in the Mandir.

To celebrate the opening, a grand procession was held through Bhuj during which Lord Swaminarayan and Jeevanpran Shree Abji Bapashree, together with Jeevanpran Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa, presided upon regal elephants and gave darshan throughout the city. Such a procession had not taken place in Bhuj since the time when Maharao ceremonially welcomed Lord Shree Swaminarayan to the city nearly 150 years earlier. Throughout the procession, an aeroplane flew above showering flower petals on everyone. This was the first time that the people of Kutch had seen such a wonderful spectacle.

Exactly fifty years since the establishment of Bhuj Mandir, its golden jubilee is being celebrated in a unique manner from 29 April till 5 May 2012. Inspired by Swamibapa's beloved heir, Acharya Swamishree Maharaj, the sants and disciples of Maninagar Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Sansthan have organised a magnificent festival.
