    It is very beautiful from the outside but once inside, there isn't really anything to see. Anyway it's a must see and it doesn't take too much time to visit it and the entrance is free.  more »

    Very calm n spiritual environment. Nice architecture. Visit for a soothing experience. Place of Baha'i faith, open for every one from morning to evening. You will be briefed by a volunteer about Baha'i faith outside and inside this temple, you can sit as long as you like given you maintain silence. Free entry. Good experience.

    This is the place where every religion person can pray there own way. the building will be in the shape of lotus. peaceful ambiance. we can sit and pry for hours together. In summer we have to take cake when we go to the temple because there will be very hot out side the temple and inside the temple it is cool. It is near to Nehru palace Metro Station. we can get auto or taxi from the station.

    Design of the temple and surrounding is eye catching. You have to wait in the queue which is often very long to enter into the temple but the environment and peaceful place you get inside the temple is worth of waiting. Staff is very friendly, they introduce people about the temple and then let everyone enter inside the main temple for 10-15 minutes where everyone have to maintain silence and pray and then come out and take a walk to surroundings which is very beautiful.

    Very beautifully architecture temple in lotus shape symbolizing religious structure of many religions like Hindu and Buddhist but it is open to all religion. If you are interested to take out time and have a break from busy schedule and pray god or connect your soul with the one supreme power, this is a place where you must try for. The metro station is far and if you expecting to see any god's physical statue or symbol, then you must know that the structure is empty and no statue is there. Just peaceful sitting arrangement without disturbance is facilitated.
