Gujarat Diary – Water show at Akshardham temple in Gandhi Nagar

After landed at Gandhi Nagar, we went to see the Akshardam temple in the evening. Though the temple is beautiful, yet we were not impressed much as we have seen the Akshardam temple at Delhi which is far better than the one at Gandhi Nagar. But the light and sound show is incomparable and really outstanding.

As the sun sets, take your seat in the outdoor amphitheater and experience the enlightenment that is the Sat-Chit-Anand Water Show. Transport yourself to the land of death and watch fearless Nachiketa confront Yama, the God of Death, and ultimately receive from him the knowledge of immortality and eternal happiness.

The show is a breathtaking 45-minute presentation. It instantly captivates you with huge high water screen, multi‐color lasers, video and light projections, fireballs and underwater flames, water jets, and surround sound symphony. Come join the live actors as they take you through a journey aimed to inspire and enlighten. Experience first-hand an unparalleled multimedia interpretive performance. I have never seen such a amazing water show anywhere in the country. It was simply awesome to watch.

You meet the Nachiketa – a fearless and determined 9-year-old boy whose curiosity angers his father.

As a punishment, his father sends him away to Yamraj – the God of Death. Nachiketa arrives at the abode of Yamraj to learn that the God of Death is away on business. When mighty Yamaraj returns he is alarmed to see the young Nachiketa at his door and attempts to scare him away with earthquakes, tornadoes, volcanoes, fire and thunderstorms.

Nachiketa remains unfazed through it all. Impressed by Nachiketa’s courage, Yamaraj offers him three boons. Selflessly, Nachiketa first asks for the restoration of his father’s peace of mind. He then asks for the knowledge of the yagna, a ceremony through which people attain divine wisdom. Lastly but most importantly, Nachiketa asks Yamraj to reveal the truth about life after death and the path to eternal happiness.

When earthquakes, tornadoes, volcanoes, fire thunderstorms happens, the we the audience get the feeling that we are also standing in front of Yamraj.
