In 1953, Yogi Bapa, Pramukh Swamiji, saints and devotees went on a pilgrimage to Chhapaiya by special train. They stopped in Delhi in late November, staying at Nandaji's bungalow. Kakaji and Nandaji had gone earlier to help with the arrangements, and met Yogi Bapa in Chhapaiya (staying with Yogi Bapa until reaching Benares). At Chhapaiya, young Tejendraprasadji Maharaj welcomed Yogi Bapa and everyone rejoiced together at the birthplace of Lord Swaminarayan. (Acharya Devendraprasadji Maharaj was pleased upon hearing the news of the special train to Chhapaiya, and accorded a comfortable stay for the saints.) From December 7, 1956 to January 22, 1957, Yogi Bapa, saints and devotees took another pilgrimage tour by special train across India, and again visited Chhapaiya.
