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.

This temple was so unusual and entirely different than traditional ones specially in India. The temple is covered with lush green grasses and blue water. Before the entrance, a warm greeting by the Bahai people makes one feel so welcomed. The concept is so different that inside the temple, they take u through a small history note and then let...

Lovely temple but hard to deal with the amazing cleanliness and amount of water used in the gardens when you can turn around and see the poverty and suffering of Delhi spread out before your eyes. Absolute silence required inside.

Visited that place not far from Delhi city center. Taking pictures is possible only outside of chapel. Very impressive architecture and garden. Please protect against sun and heat. Inside have a rest and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere.

Lotus temple or Bahai temple is a peaceful place. Great to relax and unwind yourself. The inside of the temple is magnificent specifically the dome.

Public access is restricted to ponds and gardens and for rightful reasons. Needless to mention that this beautiful temple stands tall amidst surrounding greenery and looks like a gem.... More
