When i visited this temple in 2005, the surroundings was just beautiful with lush green garden and then lotus temple was white and beautiful. When i went this time around, The garden was dried up and the temple looked worn out and yellow. The government and management needs to bring this place to its once beauty.

The inside of the temple is not anything special, but outside is very nice and beautiful. Its actually quiet here, more so than a lot of other places. You are able to sit here serenely and without anyone bothering you. Of course if you are a foreigner you will be stared at but not as obvious as other places. This... More

This temple looks awesome in the rays of a sunset. Looks shining, with garden surrounding it. To my opinion, no need to come inside, but what visit it is without really visiting? Maybe entering it helps even better enjoy the view from far outside!

Visited the temple on the way out of Delhi towards Agra, the temple requires shoes off as do most. We didn't visit inside but admired the architecture from the outside in the large surrounding gardens, there was no fee for that but maybe one is levied upon entrance?!
