Thousands celebrate Diwali in Edison’s new temple

October 28, 2019

Step into Edison’s BAPS Shri Swaminarayan temple on Sunday, and the first thing you notice is the thousands of people gathering for a Diwali celebration.

The second thing you notice is the colors.

Hundreds of blue and yellow sweets — an offering to god — are stacked high on red risers. Pink and orange sand creates swirling patterns on the floor. Women in purple, green and gold saris serve food to visitors.
