Since Pramukh Swami Maharaj’s visit to Hatharva in 1982, satsang has grown steadily. Devotees have dedicated their time and efforts and donated land to build a new BAPS mandir, which was completed in 11 months.
On 15 April 2014, Pramukh Swami Maharaj performed the Vedic murti-pratishtha rituals of the murtis for the new mandir, in Sarangpur. Then, on 19 April, the murtis were taken in a grand nagar-yatra through Hatharva.
On the morning of 20 April, a Yagna for World Peace was held, after which Pujya Bhaktipriya Swami (Pujya Kothari Swami) ritually consecrated the murtis in the new mandir.
