  • Great place. If you want to unwind yourself of all the stresses and tensions of the city sure give this place a visit. I personally find it very calming and soothing. You get to see many other things there too like the gardens etc. P. S. - Try to skip a visit here on national holidays because on those days due to the heavy rush the doors to the temple are closed and you will not be allowed to enter inside.
  • One of the must see places in Delhi. It has a great park to offer beside the major attraction- the lotus temple. Children and family friendly space, you can spare a couple of hours to visit it. The best time to visit is during the evenings if you can survive the traffic. Easy to locate and travel.
  • This is one of the monuments from Delhi is also the temple of faith for Bahai Faith. Most people came here is a tourist to see this beautiful monument it's a modern architecture in the shape of lotus it's also called as Lotus Temple in most of the government directories. This is like a meditation centre for all the people who came here there are so certain rules you have to follow like carrying your own footwear before entering the all and do not put it on the bench so others can seat.
  • Lotus Temple The Lotus Temple, located in Delhi, that was dedicated in December 1986, .Notable for its lotus flower like shape, it has become a compulsory visiting place in the city now a days. Like all Houses of Worship, the Lotus Temple is open to all, regardless of religion or any other qualification. The building is composed of 27 free-standing marble-clad "petals" arranged in clusters of three to form nine sides,[with nine doors opening onto a central hall with a height of slightly over 40 metres and a capacity of 2,500 people
  • Serene, meditative and spiritual. The lawns and lush ambience is a respite from bustling Delhi streets. However, it attracts a lot of crowd so avoid weekends and late evenings.. A dedicated parking lot is quite helpful. If you are at the right time for morning prayer session. Sitting inside in pin-drop silence is an other worldly experience. Close your eyes and you can almost hear the cosmos speak to you...👍
