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.

A modern architecture with ancient psychology and religions. A very beautiful place with long walk ways , well maintained gardens, serene artificial lakes surrounding the main complex.

You can see Lotus Temple while you're on the highway on your way to visit many of the other worthwhile places in the area, and that's all you need. I don't deny it's a beautiful building, but it loses its magic up close, and it definitely isn't worth the line-up to go inside unless you're going to worship .... the... More

The architecture is stunning, the grounds are beautiful, but the amount of people are very off-putting. Plan the time of your arrival very carefully.

It's nice to see architecture of this temple. From outside it's beautiful BUT nothing inside to write about and once you enter inside one needs to wait for prayers to finish then only one can exist Not worth going inside

the best way to reach this temple is through metro train , there is a stop called kalkaji mandir , from there 500 mts , it is a good place to travel with your friends and family , entry is free of cost , you should leave the chappals before going in to temple

Lotus flower has and always and in all religions had a special meaning. The beautiful flower that comes from the stinking mud. The temple here has this beauty purity. A place for contemplation. Try to visit it at a time when there are not too many school children and tourists. Enjoy the outside - inside and quietly with yourself.
