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 worst part is the long torturous "Q" that you have to stand in to get to the main temple. Also, they do not allow any kind of noise inside the prayer area but one can always see kids playing around and disturbing the peace...More

The Lotus Temple is just a stunning building and everytime I visit Delhi with a friend or someone who has not been there I recommend this place. I especially like visiting at sunset as the colours look great at that time of day.

Absolutely amazing experience. The architecture is breathtaking, but the peace and calm inside is absolutely amazing. Quite unlike any other place of worship. There is also a section with a visual display about the Baha'i Faith. A must visit!
