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.

Got a chance to again visit this place with family. Already visited it in the past 2-3 times and coming back to this place is always to bring myself close to peace. Once inside the temple there is perfect calm as nobody is allowed to talk. You can pray in silence to whatever faith you believe in or if you... More

I arrived at the temple shortly after 10 am and think I beat the worst of the rush, although there was a fairly steady stream of folks coming through. The information centre houses a lot of photos and info (all written) which was too much for me to take in on a short visit, but covers the history of the... More

Whilst the architectural design is undoubtably magnificent it is a long way to come our of the City especially in public transport. You are willed in by the promise of something magnificent but once you've negotiated the shoe system, soaking coconut matting and the long line the inside of the building is ultimately disappointing. Rather like a glorified church hall.... More

I didn't have any expectations and was just accompanied my friend who was doing sightseeing in Delhi with kids. But as we walked inside and sat down on a bench right in the middle of the temple, under the opening in the ceiling, I was absolutely and unexpectedly overwhelmed.... I started praying ( I am NOT a Bahai follower) and... More

The temple is awe inspiring with its size, colour and mystic.. Remove your shoes and place then in the below ground lockers for safe keeping then proceed to the temple for a regulated visit. You enter and must remain completely quiet, for the ceremony, which incorporates many different religions. It was a very spiritual experience, which unfortunately was interrupted by... More

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.
