Narendra Modi, who had launched a slew of projects in his home state before the poll dates were announced last week, will attend the silver jubilee function of the Akshardham temple in Gandhinagar on November 2.
Modi's visit has been announced by the Bochasanwasi Shri Aksharpurushottam Swaminarayan Sanstha (BAPS).
In April this year, the prime minister had paid an emotional tribute to spiritual guru and head of BAPS of Swaminarayan sect Pramukh Swami who died at the sect's temple in Sarangpur in Botad district.
Amit Shah, known as the master strategist of the saffron party, will hold deliberations with BJP leaders of different districts between November 4 and 9.
Gujarat will go to polls for 182 seats in two phases on December 9 and 14. The counting of votes will be taken up December 18.
