Description: This architectural wonder looks like an enormous lotus blossom, reminiscent of the Sydney Opera House. Too bad the interior isn't even worth a look.

Built in 1980s Bahai Lotus Temple is most beautiful place of worship one can come across. With clean surroundings, lush green, superb architecture it is a treat for the visitors. Anybody who visits this place will love it. A must visit place in Delhi.

Good to see once who haven't been there. Peace of mind inside the hall. But you are not allowed to sit in outside garden .So its just less than an hour tour. Parking is easily availble outside a feww shops outside.

a good place to be if you believe in mankind. No god or godess inside. This place is a lotus shaped architecture promotes meditation and does not force anyone to adopt to any one form of religion. well maintained.

Astonishing building surrounded by a well kept park. Even though during both of my visits to this place there a lot of other visitors the temple is surprisingly calm. Everyone was polite and quiet at least inside the temple. After spending some time in Old Delhi this is the place to visit!

I took the walk up to the temple and inside tour. It was interesting to see something modern like this in contrast to all of the historical tours available in Delhi, but the experience was not super exciting.
