Well known temple of Lord Shree Swaminarayan of Jetalpur is situated on the National High Way No.8 in Daskroi taluka of Ahmedabad district. Millions of passengers passing by the temple on the High Way do not miss an opportunity to have Darshan of the flag of religion waving at the top of the temple. Not only this Shree Swaminarayan temple of Jetalpur is a place of faith for so many ardent devotees. The great devotees like Gangama who could address Shri Hari as ‘Dear Son’ had stayed here and, therefore, it is not surprising that even in every particle of the dust of the premises, one can sense the echoes of the chanting of the divine Mantra “Jay Shree Swaminarayan”.
Journeying from Vadodara to Ahmedabad the grand temple facing the East is having three conical peaks. The great vision of Anandanand Swami has gifted the Sampradaya this temple. On Phalgun Vad 8 Vikram Samvat 1893 Acharya Maharaj Shri Ayodhyaprasadji Maharaj had performed the invocation ceremony of the temple and had installed in the central hall the idol-images of Revati Baldevji and Harikrishna Maharaj, in the hall to the South the idol image of Radha Krishna and in the hall to the North the Sukh-saiyaa have been established by him. There is a huge Sabha Mandap near the temple which can accommodate thousands of devotees. In it is situated the idol-image of Radha Krishna which the great devotee Gangaba used to worship and serve everyday.
There is a huge lake in front of the main gate of the temple situated to the other side of the National Highway. This is a divine lake. On the bank of the lake is situated an historic Umbrella of Prasadi carved out in stone and also a palace wherein Shri Hari had taken meals offered by the devotee Jivanbhakta. There is another umbrella carved out in stone on the terrace of the palace. At a distance from the lake is Dev-Wadi where there is a tree of Borsali of Prasadi. Besides this there are so many places of Prasadi at the place. A Pathshala (school) meant for the saints of the Sampradaya is also being run in Jetalpur.
