With the inspiration and blessings of Pramukh Swami Maharaj a two day celebration was held on the 25th and 26th December 2014 to mark the opening of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Falandi, district Silvassa of Dadra Nagar Haveli.
On 10 October 2014 the murtis to be installed were previously consecrated by Pramukh Swami Maharaj in Sarangpur.
On 25th December 2014, at 3.00pm a Nagar Yatra of the murtis to be installed in the new mandir were taken through the village streets in various decorative floats in the presence of Narayanprasad Swami (Acharya Swami) and other sadhus. Many devotees and well-wishers lined the streets throughout the six-kilometer route to view the colourful procession.
On the morning of 26 December, the Vedic murti-pratishtha rituals began with the mahapuja after which the murtis were installed by Pujya Bhaktipriya Swami (Pujya Kothari Swami).
