With the blessings of Lord Shree Swaminarayan we started our first satsang on 13th February 2005 (Vikram Samvat 2061 Auspicious Day of Maha Magh Vasant Panchmi) with approximately three Satsangi families where Satsangs were held at Satsangi’s residence fortnightly. As time passed by, the few families and student increased gradually. As the satsangis increased, to cope with the increasing number of satsangi’s, a hall was hired for two hours every fortnightly and gradually changed to weekly basis.
In addition to holding satsangs, we have been celebrating all auspicious Utsavs. The temple has Bal Mandal, Yuvak and Yuvika Mandals, who have actively been participating in activities like Gujarati classes, social and cultural events.
With the increase in the number of satsangi’s and advice from Pujya Mahant Swami it was decided to register the Temple according to the laws and regulations of this country and of our Sampraday. “Shree Swaminarayan Temple – Melbourne Inc”, is registered under Incorporation as a non – profit making organization. There after a property was bought on 6th April 2009 to establish a permanent Temple.
