Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi inaugurated the BAPS Hindu Mandir in Abu Dhabi, UAE. The PM along with the Mukhya Mahant of BAPS Hindu Mandir performed all the rituals. The PM termed the Hindu Mandir in Abu Dhabi as a symbol of shared heritage of humanity.

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi arrived at the BAPS Swaminarayan Mandir on 14 February for the inauguration. BAPS represents a socio-spiritual Hindu faith rooted in the Vedas, pioneered by Bhagwan Swaminarayan in the late 18th century and formally established in 1907 by Shastriji Maharaj.

The proposal of the Hindu temple in Abu Dhabi came during the first visit of PM Modi to the UAE in 2015 after which the government allocated land for the BAPS temple. Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi called this a landmark move and thanked the leadership of UAE on behalf of 130 crore Indians.

Ahead of the opening ceremony of the temple, Sadhu Brahmaviharidas recognized the significant contribution made by the benevolence and camaraderie of leaders from the UAE. He also conveyed deep gratitude towards the rulers and officials of the UAE, emphasizing the robust bond between India’s Prime Minister and the leadership of the UAE.
