Prayers, mahapuja, chanting God's name, circumambulations (pradakshina), prostrations and sakar-tula are the rituals performed by devotees in Aksharderi.
They come from India and abroad to perform rituals after the fulfilment of a mundane or spiritual wish or to make a new wish.
The glory of Aksharderi, as extolled by Yogiji Maharaj and Pramukh Swami Maharaj in fulfilling one's mundane and spiritual desires has made it a special pilgrim center in BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha.
