The place is opposite to Red For. The vicinity is very crowded but that does not deter visitors from going to the place. During festive season it a treat to watch the decoration and festivities over the place.

All Jain temples are heart touching for prayers & always a sample of construction......Very nice temple... If u want to get everlasting peace with gods presence surrounded by fresh air and scenic beauty, go there and sit inside. You can spend hours here.. gone so many times to relax & get refreshed :) :)

We only got to see this from the outside at night but I think it was worth it. We called past here after being at the Govindas Cafe at the Iskcon Temple, so close enough to do both in an evening.

I just looked at it from afar as the line was out the entrance with no break in it. It is a beautiful building built by Iran in the 1980s. My guide said it was a Muslim building but everyone else seems to be posting that it has no religion...

This temple looks better in pictures than in person. Best seen from a distance; checking one's shoes for a walk up to the temple is not worth the time. Looks like a television church from the U.S.

The Bahai way to pray and meditate. A belief where people from all religion and background can seek for their inner self for the purpose of peace and tranquility. The Lotus temple is not to be missed on your visit to Delhi. The design and structure is amazing. Salute to the hosts who welcome each visitor with a smile and... More

Closed for most of the day. The hospital for birds is not very convincing because there are very few sick birds and the whole complex looks like a pigeons breeding place. So better think twice before giving a donation. Maybe I'm wrong but it looked suspicious.

I went to a lot of temples while in India and this one was by far the worst. The people outside were not friendly or helpful. It was difficult to understand what was going on and most of the interaction I had with the staff involved demanding donations. It is beautiful from the outside, but not a must see.
