  • This is one of the best things that we can enjoy. Baha'i religion made this temple for people from every religion so they can come here and have a peaceful moment. It is beautiful and well managed. There is no extra add on or conditional charges, not even entry fee. There is a multiple shops of foods and beverages outside the temple's gate, so you don't have to worry or carry anything. The atmosphere here is clean and fresh, although there will be crowd so deal with it. Pickup your vehicle and go take a visit, keep an open mind and you will be amazed.

  • Very spacious green spaces. The architecture is beautifully designed in shape of lotus flower. Meditation room is present if you want to spend some quiet moments. Calm, Serene and great example of peace. Beautiful surroundings, well maintained, epitome of operations management. A spectacular piece of architecture well worth a visit whilst visiting New Delhi. This is a multi-faith building where people of all different beliefs can come together as one and just enjoy the peace and tranquility of this beautiful temple. We really enjoyed our visit here. Definitely worth the visit. More beautiful in real life than in pictures. Get a guide, about 500 rupees. So worth it.. You get a bottle of water with admission.
  • I went to Lotus Temple for the first time yesterday. I didn’t know much about it but I knew that they’ve space inside where you’re supposed to remain silent. And there’s garden area outside. After visiting tomorrow, everything got clear. Firstly, there’s no entry fees. They’ve toilets inside and they’re maintained pretty well. Outside there are plenty local vendors selling eatables and other stuff. Parking is also available. Now let’s get inside. It’s built beautifully and maintained very well, despite the fact that entry is free. Now what exactly it is? It’s a place for meditation and silent prayer. They try their best to keep it silent once you’re inside the hall. Well calling it a hall would be a disgrace, it’s a very well built area. The word ‘Temple’ confuses people. They come looking to pray to their God but that’s what’s different here. You connect with the power of the Universe, the power within you, of course if you want to. If you really want that, I suggest go there as soon as it opens up. The crowd is a spoiler. People just take pictures, talk loudly and the kids totally ruin it. I can’t blame them, they don’t know what the place is for. The authorities should change the name by removing the word temple and should make others aware what exactly is the place is for. It’d serve the purpose better.
