  • Lotus Temple is spectacular. Many people wanted to see this temple. It is a piece that go from the parking lot to the temple. The building is really impressive, and being able to go into the building itself is amazing. Something that I recommend!

  • 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.
  • It is a very beautiful place to visit with your family. One of the top places to see in New Delhi, it is home to one of the new religions that is also why making its way in rural families and tribes. Visit this place to find out more.
  • 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.

Where to stay in New Delhi

New Delhi contains some of India's finest and most popular hotels, catering to business travelers and well-heeled tourists. For budget accommodations, consider the neighborhood of Paharganj, just west of the New Delhi railway station. Noisy and packed with peddlers of every kind, the area offers some of the least expensive rooms located relatively near major attractions. Guesthouses serve as the city's best mid-range option, with new ones constantly springing up to satisfy the growing number of visitors. Always call or visit the website in advance to check on prices and amenities included.
