Owner 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.

We drove by and just missed the closing of the entry line (5:30). We walked up the hill from the entrance to a break in the shrubs where there was a good view. Be careful of the barbed wire that is kind of hidden in the bushes and sometimes pushes out onto the sidewalk. We could see the gardens also,... More

Sometimes crowds don't take away from the sanctity of a place. For me, the crowds here did. The person who wrote the guide book I had wrote about how quiet the prayer hall was but there were so many people when I was there, quiet it was not. I still enjoyed seeing it but would recommend going as early in... More

I have been to this Bahai Lotus Temple couple of times whenever I've visited Delhi. No doubt the the temple is well designed and clean. But it seems it has just become a sightseeing spot for tourists where after security checkings and shoe deposit, visitors stand in line and enter in the big hall room. Though it is strictly mentioned... More

It's a very nice and peaceful place in delhi. It's lotus shaped temple, quite beautiful from the outside. Car parking facilities available just in front of the temple only. It stands closed on monday, so don't plan it on Monday.

Unable to confirm how to comments. Two hours in queue for what !!! The structure is amazing...ambience is great. But there's only a prayer hall to be seen inside. Peaceful and calm. Beautiful structure and well maintained but too much time consuming and not worth it.

While the Temple belongs to a certain faith, the fact that people of all faiths are welcome here enhances its beauty manifold. You can easily witness people of all faiths, ages & from all walks of life thronging to the Lotus Temple for a glimpse of the exquisite architecture as well as to relax in the shade of the trees...

This is a temple in shape of lotus. You will sit inside this lotus and will feel the direct connection with God. Peaceful place. If you have spare time then only go.
