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.

Really well maintained park and beautiful building. You cannot take pics from inside and there has to be quiet. If you want to sit down and go with you thoughts for a while, this is definitely your place. Maybe I wouldn't recommend people with small children.

Although we did not go into the temple due to a religious festival taking place, we took plenty of photo`s of from out side. the temple is mesmerizing and you cannot help but admire the architecture, well worth the visit a must see if in Delhi.

The Bahai faith is something I was not aware of until I visited this temple and I found it quite interesting. There is no fee to be paid and no obligation for anything religious. It is just... More

It's surely one of the most important attractions in Delhi. Situated in an area which is conveniently accessible by Metro too.

Good place to visit, though nothing much inside the temple. Would advise going before 5 pm as the timings of closure will vary depending on the months

Lovely place; peaceful and serene garden. Ideal for quite meditation inside the main building. However, getting in could be painful due to too long queue as it may be tiring

Its beautifully built and very clean as well...Garden is superb.Very neat.The Lotus Temple, located in New Delhi, India, is a Bahá'í House of Worship . Notable for its flowerlike shape, it serves as the Mother Temple of the Indian subcontinent and has become a prominent attraction in the city

Visiting this Temple was a MUST during our short stay in Delhi on the way back from Andamans. Spotlessly clean territory (inside the fence), orange trees in the park.... Dont know what is inside the Temple, too many people were there trying to get in and had to take shoes off which was not very tempting because it was chilly... More
