For Parents & Children
Children are more than welcome at BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir! His Holiness Mahant Swami Maharaj believes that the Mandir belongs to them just as much as it does to anyone else.
To ensure that we can provide the best possible experience to them as well as their parents, please bear in mind the following guidelines and information.

The Reception Hall is available as an un-supervised children’s facilities area for fathers, mothers and children to use freely – for changing, feeding, and for young children to have space to play. A microwave is also available here, if required.
Baby bags are not permitted in the assembly hall. Please store these in the small crèche (nursing room) or in the Reception Hall (children’s play area). A small bag for toys and essentials may be taken into the assembly hall, provided it can easily fit in your lap.
Please fold away prams when storing them in the Mandir – pram storage is in the Reception Hall – to allow as many prams as possible to be safely accommodated.
There is a reserved seating area for mothers with babies in the assembly hall during daily Puja Darshan and most evening programmes. Please find this nearest to the doors of the mahila corridor for ease of entry and exit.
