  • We arrived under a few drops of rain. There was a long queue that foreshadowed hours of waiting. This was not the case. The control gantries are effective. The tail is quickly fluidized. In any case, the places are worth a visit. The organization to drop off his shoes, his bag, entering the sanctuary is in focus.

There are guides as well who can tell you about particular details & the history of this Temple. You need to keep your shoes in packet and carry along with you inside the meditation area. All in all it was nice experience.
  • A Spiritual trip to Lotus Temple in New Delhi. Many years back I used to visit this place every weekend when I was practicing meditation. It's awesome and I could n't resist myself taking pics of the amazing architecture. Inside the tomb you have seating arrangement and a dice to offer your prayers. people from all religion can visit and offer their prayers which has a specific time. Most of the times you have to remain quite.
  • It is necessary to pass a long queue. In the temple at certain times read and sing prayers. Temple acoustics are amazing. When singing prayers, it was amazing. This caused a strong positive impression. I love it and we will come back for sure. If you are not religious or interested in the architecture you see in the pictures then probably not for you.
