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.

Second time there - must say 4 years ago the pools were a lot cleaner and the gardens were open (maybe it's because the Diwalli invasion...) - still impressive. Take 10-15 minutes to close your eyes and enjoy the silence the meditation hall offers.

Take a walk through the grounds of the lotus temple, but don't make the mistake of skipping the museum. Bahá'í is one of the most welcoming religions out there and is such a joy to read about.

Built in 1980s Bahai Lotus Temple is most beautiful place of worship one can come across. With clean surroundings, lush green, superb architecture it is a treat for the visitors. Anybody who visits this place will love it. A must visit place in Delhi.
