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.

Long way back I visited this place with my family .Place is very peaceful.There beautiful garden around temple.Greenery all over.There was pin drop silence inside the temple.All the people were doing meditation for internal peace.Its a good place to explore yourself deep inside. Although I was thrown outside for creating disturbance.

Beautiful place to visit. The grounds were amazing and the temple itself was stunning. The tour guides were very good so you knew about the history of the religon. Inside was so peaceful and smelt divine. Really enlightening and a definite must see

I enjoyed the visit but it's not something that I'd make more than a passing effort for unless you're into that sort of thing. Don't get me wrong, it's impressive. It's just not historical in my eyes like so much else. If you have plenty of time certainly worth a look.

We went to the temple as part of a day trip in Delhi. This place is amazing. The gardens are lovely, and there is a special atmosphere there, which allows you to put the busy and noisy metropolitan outside and focus on mediation and appreciation of beauty. The staff at the place is very well organized. They let you in... More

When you hear 'Temple', people could be misled considering the big, fat Akshardham Temple in the vicinity. However Lotus temple is more than just brick, stone or mortar. The design is awesome. But the prayer hall inside just insist of 1 rule; silence. You can pray (silently), meditate or see/ look in awe of the construction. This place will blow... More

We visited this beautiful temple around midday and was fairly busy. But its very organised and no where do you have to wait in queues. The temple has beautiful views surrounding it and highly maintained. The prayer hall is nice and peaceful and you have to observe silence in there. It's great having some peace and quiet after being in... More

I visit this place as it is including in my holiday trip. When i was reached i saw a very unique architecture which attracts people to visit. There is a peace but not worthy place to visit. Not feeling important to spend money on this place.
