We will begin our day with a guided tour of this magnificent shrine. Open to one and all, the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir was inaugurated in August of 2007 after only 17 months of construction time utilizing 1.3 Million volunteer hours. The Mandir is comprised of 3 types of stone (Turkish Limestone, Italian marble, and Indian pink sandstone). More than 34,000 individual pieces were carved by hand in India, shipped to the USA and assembled in Lilburn like a giant 3-D puzzle. IT's a must see in the small town of Lilburn, GA.(Shoes are NOT allowed in the Shrine so please bring socks)!
Following the BAPS Shrine tour we will head immediately to Atlanta for a behind-the-scenes tour of one of the most amazing professional sports stadiums in the world. The Mercedes Benz Stadium, the world's first Platinum LEED Certified Stadium, is home to both the Atlanta Falcons and The Atlanta United professional soccer team. This tour will take us behind the scenes to see areas of the stadium that cannot be accessed on game day.
Our trip will include round trip transportation on late model motorcoaches
