After celebrating the Fuldolotsav festival in Kutch, Acharya Swamiji Maharaj returned to Maninagardham, and then travelled to the Panchmahal region.

After celebrating the Fuldolotsav festival in Kutch, Acharya Swamiji Maharaj returned to Maninagardham, and then travelled to the Panchmahal region. He visited the newly opened Mandir in Dhandhalpur, and gave Darshan to the disciples of that part of Panchmahal. From there, He travelled to the village of Nani Sarsan to inaugurate a splendid Murti of Lord Shree Nilkanthvarni on the banks of the village lake. Gurudev Swamibapa and Ved Ratna Acharya Swamishree Maharaj have visited this village and bathed in this lake on several occasions. Consequently, this consecrated lake now remains filled with water all throughout the river. In remembrance of the many occasions when Gurudev Swamibapa and Ved Ratna Acharya Swamishree Maharaj visited Nani Sarsan, the villagers requested Acharya Swamiji Maharaj to install the Murti on the side of the lake.

From there, Acharya Swamiji Maharaj travelled to Ranipura and Harkundi, where scripture recitals were held on behalf of the disciples of those regions. He then travelled to Swaminarayan Palli, where the 48th patotsav ceremony of Lord Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa was performed on Thursday 24 March 2022. In celebration of the golden jubilee of the Mandir, which will be held in 2 years time, a magnificent Shikhar Bandh Mandir is to be built at the location of the existing Mandir. Consequently, Acharya Swamiji Maharaj performed the Utthapan ceremony and then temporarily installed the divine Murtis in a nearby location so that demolition and construction work can begin.
