Bridging India’s timeless heritage with modern America

BAPS Swaminarayan Akshardham: A landmark of Hindu Architecture and Culture in Robbinsville, New Jersey

At Studio+, we believe in the power of giving back to our communities. That’s why we are proud to support our employees in their volunteer efforts. Through our commitment to corporate social responsibility, Studio+ provides its employees with 16 hours of volunteering days annually, encouraging them to contribute to causes that resonate with their passions and values.

One shining example of this commitment is Hemal Tilvawala, one of our dedicated employees, who was inspired by the cultural and spiritual richness of the BAPS Swaminarayan Akshardham campus located in Robinsville, New Jersey.

This magnificent oasis, standing as a symbol of art, architecture, and devotion, captivated Hemal’s heart. Driven by the mission of Akshardham to promote cultural understanding and spiritual growth, Hemal, along with other Studio+ volunteers, dedicated their time and skills to contribute to the creation of this remarkable campus.

“It’s an unforgettable experience that words can’t fully capture. As an Architect-designer by profession, it’s equally vital to be hands-on in construction. Volunteers with diverse backgrounds, such as doctors, pharmacists, and computer engineers, join forces to invest their time in creating something remarkable. The results are so incredible that future generations might find it hard to believe without seeing construction videos. We must show them the process for them to truly grasp the magnitude of what we’ve built.”

Their efforts, immersed in unity, compassion, and the desire to make a positive impact, played a pivotal role in preserving and enhancing this cultural treasure. By giving their time and expertise, they have become stewards of cultural heritage, ensuring that future generations can continue to experience the grandeur of Hindu traditions.

This act of volunteering not only underscores our employee’s commitment to community service but also exemplifies the Studio+ values of unity, compassion, and the aspiration to contribute to a brighter, more harmonious world. It is a testament to the profound impact individuals can have in preserving and promoting our shared cultural heritage.
