About 20-30 min drive from downtown Toronto, BAPS stands out as a hidden immaculate gem among gray business and industrial boxed type buildings. There is no fee to get in and for parking. To get in the seasonal exhibit, however, there is a 5$ adult...More

It was beautiful to see the stone architecture! It also has a small museum inside the temple which provides in-depth view of ancient Indian history.

A slice on India in one temple! That's how I would summarise this place. You should visit to see the intensity of details that exist!

I'm glad we made the drive. We just missed a huge celebration. They were taking everything down when we got there. The inside is as beautiful as the outside. Had some leftover food that was offered to us. And yes, no shoes in the building.
