Yogiji Maharaj and Pramukh Swami Maharaj had sanctified this village in 1968 and blessed the villagers. Thereafter, regular visits by Pujya Tyagvallabh Swami and other BAPS sadhus nourished the growth of satsang. The combined efforts of the devotees has resulted in the building of the new BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir.
To commemorate its inauguration, 1,100 couples participated in the 140-kund yagna for world peace. This was followed by a grand nagar-yatra of the murtis.
On 23 February, Pujya Keshavjivan Swami (Pujya Mahant Swami) ritually consecrated the murtis in the new hari mandir. Pramukh Swami Maharaj had previously performed the Vedic murti-pratishtha rituals in Sarangpur on 28 April 2014.
