Union Minister of Textiles and Minister of Women & Child Development, Smt. Smriti Irani, visited the BAPS Swaminarayan Mandir in Kolkata.
Senior mandir volunteers guided her around the campus. During her stay she offered salutations and prayers for world peace in the main sanctum of the temple. Thereafter, she visited the Neelkanth Mandapam where she offered abhishek and prayers for the well-being, peace and prosperity of the entire nation.
She was inspired by the activities of the mandir and wrote in the visitors’ book: “It is a blessing to set foot on a haven blessed by the Divine. My salutations to all who give service at the feet of Bhagwan. You are truly blessed to receive this opportunity. May you continue to serve humanity and bring glory to the teachings of Swaminarayan Bhagwan. Jai Swaminarayan!”
