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.

The gardens are good to hang out in summer but the problem is that they are not accessible to public. There is a pool of water.

Lotus temple is a very nice place to visit. Guests are not allowed to carry any eatables inside. There is a security check at the gate where they check bags for eatables. Better to go early in the morning as midday it gets hotter. Guests are not allowed to wear shoes or slippers after a certain point. However they do... More

This is probably one of the most peaceful attractions in Delhi!The waiting queue might be a bit long but surely worth it! If you have time, take a walk in the gardens/ parks adjacent to the temple.. The Kalkaji Mandir Metro station is located just opposite the temple so very convenient for tourists!

The architecture, the marble, floors and seats, the high ceilings etc lets you relive your stress and concentrate on meditating on good things in life. The volunteers do a great job in keeping the place, people and the surroundings in immaculate condition. I am not sure it is wise to say that it was a waste of time standing in... More

One of the most beautiful places in India - it excudes serenity. The temple is staffed by young volunteers, mostly from Europe or North American who can explain the Bahai faith.

The walk can be through a nice parc, approaching the impressiv building in the form of a lotus. The surrounding gardens are well kept. Many more locals than foreigners came in. At the entrance of the temple a short breefing is given, no pictures allowed, and silence is expected. Inside you can sit as long as you wish, pray, look... More

Great serene atmosphere. Peaceful place for retrospection, surrounded by a well kept garden. The evenings are particularly brilliant in the lighting
