Shree Swaminarayan Mandir Shaniyada 5th Patotsav

The village of Shaniyada is situated in the Ghoghamba region of the Panchmahal district. The people of these region are devoted and loyal, but extremely poor. However, in the past few years, by the divine grace of Lord Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa and the continuous support of Ved-ratna Acharya Swamishree Maharaj, their prospects have changed dramatically. Their affiliation to Maninagar Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Sansthan if resolute, unyielding and praiseworthy. In 2015, Sanatan-dharma-sanrakshak Acharya Swamishree Maharaj conceded to their prayers and a new Mandir was constructed, in which He performed the Pratishtha ceremony and installed the divine Murtis of Lord Shree Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa and the Lord’s sacred lineage of spiritual heirs in a golden sinhasan. 

Acharya Shree Jitendriyapriyadasji Swamiji Maharaj visited Shaniyada to perform the fifth anniversary of the Mandir. After performing the patotsav rituals, he spoke about the immense blessings of Vishwa-vatsalya-mahodadhi Acharya Swamishree Maharaj and how, due to His mercy, the lives of all the disciples of the region had been transformed. He also evoked memories of the wonderful festival held exactly five year earlier when the Mandir was inaugurated.

Before departing from the Shaniyada, a tree planting ceremony in the village was held. All these were planted in memory of Saddharma Ratnakar Acharya Swamishree Maharaj.
