Lord Shree Swaminarayan visited the village on numerous occasions, and it is said that He gave the name, Sukhpar – the village of happiness. Jeevanpran Shree Abji Bapashree used to visit the village often as many disciples lived in Sukhpar. 

Accepting the prayers of the disicples of the village, Acharya Swamishree Maharaj opened a splendid centre for the propagation and preservation of Lord Shree Swaminarayan’s supremacy and philosophy – Sukhpar Sanskar Kendra in 2014. Five years have elapsed since that occasion, and Acharya Swamishree Maharaj and Sants visited Sukhpar to celebrate the anniversary.

During the 2 day stay in Sukhpar, the scripture recitals of Shree Swaminarayan Gadi and Shree Abji Bapashree ni Vato were held. A procession was also held through the main streets of the village during the start of the first day. On Monday 13 May 2019, Acharya Swamishree Maharaj performed the patotsav ceremony of the Lord presiding in Sukhpar Mandir.

As part of the festivities, Acharya Swamishree Maharaj gave generous donations to the cattle sanctuary of the village, on behalf of Maninagar Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Sansthan.
