Lord Swaminarayan stayed in Gadhada for 25 years and made Gadhada the centre of the Samprayday. By the request of Dadakhachar and his sisters, the Lord constructed a grand temple.
The idol of Gopinathji Maharaj installed at Gadhada is in the same proportions as the Lord himself. Narayanji Suthar was the sculptor of the idol of Gopinathji Maharaj. Lord Swaminarayan gave him divine vision so that he may see the Lord for his exact measurement even when he was miles away.
