BAPS Shri Swaminaraya
No matter your faith, the Shri Swaminarayan Mandir is a spectacular architectural wonder just one mile from downtown Lilburn. In fact, this Hindu temple is the sixth BAPS stone temple built outside of India and also the largest of its kind outside that country. This 32,000-square foot temple features hand-carved stone spires, a wraparound veranda, and five pinnacles to represent the Himalayan hills. It is open to the public every day of the week, so regardless of your beliefs, you are always welcome to come marvel at this magnificent place of worship.
Take a Look at the Li
For the bookworms out there, you only need to look to the Gwinnett County Public Library for all of your literary needs. This library service, which originated from the library established by the Norcross Women’s Club in 1907, now has over six million items that circulate among the branches to its over 200,000 borrowers. So, no matter what book you are craving, if you cannot find it in the Lilburn branch, you can request the book from any other library that is a part of the network free of charge and enjoy some relaxation time reading away.
