The village of Ariyana is located on the outskirts of Surat city. Satsang began here in 1982 and was blessed with a visit by Param Pujya Pramukh Swami Maharaj on 21 January 1985.
The dedicated efforts of BAPS sadhus and volunteers resulted in the growth of satsang here, so Ariyana's devotees were able to make the efforts to build a local mandir to further strengthen their satsang.
The groundbreaking ceremony for a mandir was performed on 18 October 2013 by Pujya Narendraprasad (Acharya) Swami.

The murtis to be installed were consecrated by Pramukh Swami Maharaj in Sarangpur on 24 November 2014.
On the morning of 27 November, a Vishwashanti Mahayagna - Yagna for World Peace - was held in which over 200 devotees participated. In the afternoon, a colorful Nagar Yatra of the murtis to be installed was held through the main streets of Ariyana.
On 28 November, the murtis were ritually installed in the new mandir by Pujya Ghanshyamcharan Swami.
