New Jersey has some truly unique spots but I was absolutely blown away when I discovered this. It’s not the kind of place you’d expect to find in New Jersey, but here it is – an architecturally stunning gem with cultural and religious significance. This striking site is a Bochasanwasi Akshar Purushottam Swaminarayan Sanstha (BAPS) Mandir. In its simplest terms, it is a Hindu temple and cultural complex.

The temple is located at 112 North Main Street, Robbinsville. Mandir hours are 9 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. daily. To learn more, visit BAPS.org. To explore the site, enjoy the video below.
