Pretty building, especially if you are interested in architecture. Unlike some of the other Bahai temples, the gardens are not kept up as well, and you cannot go into the garden area. But it is a spot of green in the chaos that is Delhi, it is free, and it is peaceful.

fascinating and beautifully designed building, very calm and worth the visit, obviously you cannot see on site the amazing design that can be seen from the air but it is different to us and thus worth the very small metro fare to get there

Peaceful from Inside and good looking from outside the temple.Thats what I can say.Parking at the Opposite sides cost Rs 25/- per car. Look at the beauty from inside the temple. Garden area around the temple is closed for walking.Try to stay till evening to get some nice clicks. Good option to visit if you have nothing special to do.

The Bahai temple or the Lotus temple as it is called is built in the shape of a lotus. The place has a silent meditation hall inside, which is very quiet and calm. Outside there are a few ponds of water, which are supposed to keep the surroundings cool. The white structure gives a very pure feel. The place is... More

Once you step into this place you'd realize it's a different world all together. The temple and grounds are very well maintained. A great place to just sit, do nothing and unwind. Visitors are requested to keep their voices down and take off their foot wear before entering the temple. Given that this is not a commercial attraction, there are... More

The Bahai Lotus Temple is a beautiful temple dedicated to the Bahai faith. The architecture is stunning. The temple is used for meditation. The line was long (about 1 hr) to get in and I'm not sure it was worth it; I would not wait in line again, I would take a picture from a distance.
