History
This mandir comes under the Narnarayan Dev Gadi. Senior devotees Gangarambhai, Sundarjibhai and others from the Bhuj region of Kutch went to Gadhada where Swaminarayan was attending a Fuldol festival. In that festival, the devotees of Bhuj met Swaminarayan and requested him to construct a temple in Bhuj.

Shree Swaminarayan asked Vaishnavananand Swami to proceed with a team of the saints to Bhuj and construct a temple. Vaishnavanand Swami and the accompanying saints went to Bhuj in 1822, camped at the place neighbouring the land of temple drew plans of the temple, complex, executed the plans with minute details and within a short span of one year, they built a temple abode of NarNarayan Dev.

Satsang in the Kutch region was spread by Late Guru Ramanand Swami. He constantly visited Bhuj and other places in Kutch.

Shree Swaminarayan had graced this temple in the western belt of India and had himself installed the idols of Narnarayan dev and his own form - Harikrishna Maharaj in central sanctum sanctorum of the temple. Besides these manifestations of God at the central dome there under the eastern dome, are seated RadhaKrishna Dev, Harikrishna Maharaj and in the western dome Ghanshyam Maharaj. Roop Chowki - the main square of the inner temple-houses the images of Ganapati and Hanuman.

Akshar Bhavan in the temple treasures the personal items of Shree Swaminarayan.

The Earthquake of 26 January 2001 destroyed much of the City of Bhuj, including this magnificent and divinely constructed temple. The saints & satsangis of Kutch residing in India and satsangis living abroad, have resolved to construct a new marbled temple a short distance away from this historic site.
