ROBBINSVILLE — What is believed to be the largest Hindu temple in the world officially opens Sunday after being under construction for 12 years.

The BAPS Swaminarayan Akshardham and surrounding campus off Route 130, which was built by over 12,500 volunteers from around the world, has been a buzz of activity in anticipation of Sunday's opening.

BAPS (each individual letter is pronounced) is short for Bochasanwasi Shri Akshar Purushottam Swaminarayan Sanstha, a socio-spiritual Hindu faith with its roots in the Vedas. Founded on the pillars of practical spirituality, BAPS says it reaches out far and wide to address the spiritual, moral and social challenges and issues faced in the world.
