BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir

The city of Rajkot has a special link with the Swaminarayan Sampradaya at the Kothi Compound, that Lord Swaminarayan met the then British Governor of Bombay, Sir John Malcolm on 26 February 1830. Rajkot served as the base where Brahmaswarup Shastriji Maharaj stayed while studying Sanskrit under the tutelage of Jivanlal Shastri. And Rajkot was where the first historic meeting between Shastriji Maharaj and Yogiji Maharaj took place. The roots of the Bochasanwasi Shree Akshar Purushottam Swaminarayan Sanstha in Rajkot were planted when a small mandir dedicated to Akshar and Purushottam was built. With the spirited and selfless assistance of Yogiji Maharaj, Krishnaji Ada and other sadhus and devotees, Shastriji Maharaj taught Lord Swaminarayan's pure philosophy of Akshar and Purushottam to many.
