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.

Lotus Temple is in Nehru Place. Worth visiting this. Every person from all religions can go and offer prayers. This is constructed and maintained by Bhahay house of worship. Very good site to visit

Though a recent addition to New Delhi's attractions, this is a worth a visit. Spotlessly clean and unusual in design on enormous grounds, this is worth a closer look from close up and gives wonderful photo opportunities. The inside hall is spartan with marble seating benches but has a tranquil silence which touches the soul.

I've visited this place thrice and I'm still mesmerized by it. On weekends, you face a long queue, but once inside the premises, you won't feel very crowded. The temple hall is beautiful. Here, you're supposed to keep completely quiet and pray whatever you like. The silent atmosphere is a amazing feeling. You can hear the small day-to-day sounds that... More

Really, one cannot come to Delhi and not come... More

This was very neat but to get into the inside on the day I went through was a two hour wait so just enjoyed the view from the outside. If you have the time very much worth a passing as it is quite different than most of the other sites to view.
