    BAPS Mandir — Harmony & Peace in the UAE

UAE leadership has once again shown the path to harmony and peace in a world beset with intolerance and religious strife. It has shown the world that different communities can co-exist through mutual respect and tolerance. We are referring to the inauguration of the BAPS Hindu Temple in Abu Dhabi which was opened to the public on February 14, 2024.

The temple is one of the largest religious centers outside of India, built by the BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha. Built on a 27-acre land provided by the UAE government, this hand-carved stone temple standing 108 feet high is symbolic of the religious freedom in an Islamic nation. Our company Electric Way had the privilege to participate in the construction of this monument by supplying the cables and electrical accessories.

Abu Dhabi as the capital of UAE has played a stellar role in enhancing the image of Islam and its religious tolerance by encouraging multiple faiths to co-exist in the country. The Abrahamic Family House is yet another milestone that celebrates the freedom of religion in UAE. This complex houses a mosque, a church, and a synagogue for each community to practice its faith.

Islam is misrepresented in many parts of the world and has created extreme polarized views of a religion that is followed by over 2 billion people around the world in over 57 countries. A Hindu template of such a gigantic scale in a Muslim nation will help to bridge the misunderstanding and represent Islamic in its true and tolerant image.

The BAPS temple is an architectural, engineering, and aesthetic marvel. Our contribution was the supply of rubber flexible H07RN cables, Fire-resistant FlamBICC cables, PVC insulated wiring cables and XLPE insulated cables used for the power transmission and electrical fittings.

The temple is also symbolic of the growing relations between UAE and India. The Indian Prime Minister Shri Modi is working consistently to promote the economic and social relations between the two countries as evidenced by his 7 visits to the country in the recent past. The UAE-India Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA) is also showing great results and will forge stronger ties between the two nations. We are privileged to be part of the growing trade relations between India and the UAE. Electric Way India is engaged in several projects that are helping to build the Power & Energy capacity of India.

UAE is a country that we have grown up in and we are fortunate to be part of the success story of the nation.
