Theres not much to dislike about the Lotus Temple. Stunning from afar, it looks slightly less impressive close up but taking the complex as a whole I had a good time. Noise and pollution free, with lots of well maintained, verdant green lawns, it is a very serene place amongst the chaos of India. I can't say the inside of... More

A Lotus temple which attracts more from looking outside and when you come inside it attracts more to your mind & heart for the piece and claim. When you are in Delhi then you must visit this place once. Here not only the Indian but the foreigner(overseas people) is also being a volunteer to explain the role of Prayer and... More

very beautiful building built in white marble. The lotus flower is chosen by the architect of this temple as it is common among many religions.It is a temple where every one can pray

The BaHai temple was very different from most of the other temples we have visited. It was quiet, peaceful and quite spiritual experience even for the non religious among us. The metro gets you within walking distance.

No offense meant but it reminded me exactly like a theme park which has nothing to do with the Bahai religion. Queues everywhere and instructions on where and how to stand. Admission by groups of a "certain number" and despite signs everywhere instructing "quiet", it was not enforced and was anything but. Much too busy for even a moment of... More

This is an impressive structure set in park land. I cannot comment on the interior other than to say it is quite plain with a myriad of shafts of daylight filtering through giving a sense of peace. There is a museum/information centre which is very informative but not very interestingly presented.

I have no experience of other place that connected me with my inner soul in so prompt and ease. I think its architecture is so scientific for spiritual connection.I love to go there again & again.
