THE SHRI SWAMINARAYAN MANDIR IN CHINO HILLS
The BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Chino Hills is truly something to behold. It is the first earthquake proof Hindu Temple in the world and is riddled with the incredibly intricate stylings of the Hindu Mandir tradition. The complex includes a stunning 91 foot lotus shaped pond as well as a cultural center, gymnasium and classrooms. The Mandir uses a state-of-the-art solar power system which is expected to reduce 1,556 tons of CO2 emissions, which is the equivalent of planting 62,244 trees, over a 25-year period.
