Atladra is a village on the outskirts of the city of Baroda in Gujarat.

By Shastriji Maharaj in July 1945.

Lord Swaminarayan visited the village of Atladra, sanctifying the place of Mulu Metar and Krishna Mali.

Shastriji Maharaj's Suvarna Tula Mahotsav was celebrated here in 1949.

A devotee named Mathurbhai and his devout wife longed to see the day when a beautiful mandir would adorn their village. To this end, he started constructing a mandir but soon ran into problems. Realising that only a powerful personality like Shastriji Maharaj would be able to fulfil his wish, he requested Shastriji Maharaj to construct a mandir in his village. Shastriji Maharaj went to Atladra and showed Mathurbhai the land that had been sanctified by Lord Swaminarayan. Mathurbhai promptly purchased the land and handed it over to Shastriji Maharaj.

The mandir construction commenced, and as with previous temples, the saints were personally involved in the work.

Pramukh Swami Maharaj, known then as Narayanswarupdas, was also involved in the construction. The mandir was soon completed and at the image installation ceremony, Shastriji Maharaj predicted that Atladra would, in the future, become part of Baroda itself.

The festivals of Vasant Panchmi (Jan/Feb) and Janmashthmi (August) are celebrated here annually in the presence of Pramukh Swami Maharaj.
