Two days of celebrations marked the opening of the new BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Waghai village of Dang district in Gujarat, India. On the morning of 6 January, over 600 yajman couples participated in the Yagna for World Peace. In the afternoon, a grand nagar yatra of murtis took place through the main streets.
On 7 January, Pujya Keshavjivan Swami (Pujya Mahant Swami) installed the murtis in the new mandir to the accompaniment of Vedic rites. Pragat Brahmaswarup Pramukh Swami Maharaj had previously performed the Vedic pratishtha rituals of these murtis in Sarangpur on 15 July 2014.
