  • The monument is a relatively recent Ecumenical space. Good for some pictures, is always full and it is not possible to enter.

  • The lotus temple is an architectural masterpiece which cannot be missed when visiting Delhi. When you first catch a glimpse of this temple from their amazing gardens, you can't help but marvel at it.  You will need to collect a bag to put your shoes in and you will be ushered inside as a group. You will need to keep silent. The temple is great to look at from the inside. Women will need to dress respectfully as it's an active temple and cover shoulders and knees.  A beautiful landmark which should be at the top of your Delhi itinerary.
  • Beautiful Peaceful. I always used to think it's a Hindu temple but after visiting came to known it's the "Bahai" Lotus temple was designed by Iranian architect Fariborz Sahba in the shape of a lotus as it is common to several religions including Hinduism and Buddhism. He has won several international awards for this brilliant piece of work including the awards from the GlobArt Academy, Institution of Structural Engineers and more. It also gained recognition in several publications in the world like the Encyclopedia Britannia and Guinness World Records. There have been stamps of the Lotus Temple, books and even musical compositions created to showcase its beauty and grandeur..
  • One of the most iconic places in New Delhi. One of its kind structured , well maintained . You will feel at peace visiting this place. Usually crowded and during peak seasons the queue can go up to 2km outside the entrance gate. Yet this place deserves the wait. Site seeing New Delhi, lotus temple is a must on the visit list!
  • One of the most attractive and pleasant place in Delhi. It is a kind of Bhai's temple of worship. This is a kind of peaceful place. The architecture and design is awesome. One of the most visited tourist place in Delhi. The blue water outside it made it more beautiful and more like a lotus. You have to take off your shoes before entering in the temple. There is a beautiful garden in the campus with having so many different kind of flowers.
  • A place which once was reported to be the most visited building in the world needs no description. The temple showcases the epitome of architectural brilliance. It is a good source for learning about the Bahá'í religion and it's practices. The temple is open for visitors till sunset and there isn't any entry fee. You can reach the temple via Metro, the nearest station being Kalkaji. Visiting Delhi, this place should top your must visit places.
