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 structure technique of this building is very interesting. It gives strong space effect in interior. The place is very clear but if you will arrive with metro you must walk a short distance. There are slums on the way, walk only ahead.

You leave your shoes a long way from the entrance so you don’t quite know what to expect. When you arrive at the temple, you feel welcome regardless of religion. You can listen to a service or spend time on your own. I practiced some...More
