The architecture of temple is marvelous with exceptional carvings which leave one spell bounded. The evening aarti which happens around 7 pm is a must. The temple is well maintained and has proper arrangements for shoes and bags which are not allowed inside. There are lot of eating places in the nearby gol market.

Very peaceful place to visit, but I think you do need a guide Ours was very good, there is so much history in the pictures inside which without a guide I would not have understood. There didn't appear to be any guides in the temple As you enter there is a room to your left for foreign visitors to leave... More

I feel this place could have been better maintained. It also feels more like showpeice than a place of worship.

If you like buildings then this a must-visit place in Delhi. Cameras and mobiles are not allowed. You can keep them in lockers. There is a parking space too. Nice marble work. Sadly, no photographs of the inside.
