Bomet town is situated in the former Rift Valley province of Kenya. 
Satsang in Bomet started in 1997 and was nurtured by the efforts of sadguru swamis, other swamis and devotees. In 2014, land for a mandir was acquired. With the dedicated efforts of all the devotees of Bomet, and the support of the devotees of Sotik and Narok, the Bomet mandir was completed. On 9 May 2016, in Sarangpur, Param Pujya Pramukh Swami Maharaj performed the murti-pratishtha rituals of the murtis for Bomet mandir.
The auspicious mandir opening celebrations were held on 26–27 May 2018 in the presence of Pujya Bhaktipriyadas (Kothari) Swami.
On the afternoon of 26 May, a colorful nagar yatra of the murtis to be installed was held through Bomet. Over 1,500 devotees from Bomet, Sotik, Narok, Nairobi, Nakuru, Kisumu and Mombasa joined in the procession. Prayers were offered for the peace and prosperity of the people of Bomet.
On the morning of 27 May, Pujya Bhaktipriyadas (Kothari) Swami performed the murti-pratishtha mahapuja and, thereafter, consecrated the murtis in the mandir. This occasion was attended by over 1,500 people.
The mandir project has been enthusiastically supported by Dr. Joyce Laboso, Governor of Bomet County. She called the mandir “an important landmark for Bomet County.”
To commemorate the centenary celebrations of Pramukh Swami Maharaj, the Governor renamed a road in the town as ‘Pramukh Swami Avenue’.
She also recognized the efforts of BAPS Charities for providing infrastructure support to Tarakwa High School in the Mutarakwa Division of Bomet county.
