          features or focal points, and are also used to mark the locations of historically significant events

Shree Swaminarayan Mandir Kingsbury

This beautiful, intricately crafted marble Chhatri (literally translated as umbrella) containing the divine footprints of supreme Lord Shree Swaminarayan was inaugurated by Acharya Shree Purushottampriyadasji Swamishree Maharaj on Sunday 17th August 2014. (Grand Opening)

This Chhatri is the first of its kind outside of India. Beneath this monument are buried over 75 million prayers in the form of repeated writing of the ‘Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa’ mahamantra, handwritten by Sants and disciples, young and old, in the 12 months preceding the Shree Swaminarayan Mandir Kingsbury Grand Opening Festival.
