  • The opulence and magnificence of traditional Indian architecture showcased with such brilliance and splendour that fills the heart of every visitor with pride and glory. Though the security checks are thorough and strict still the passage through them is smooth and trouble free. The food courts offer expensive yet delicious dishes. The temple in itself is a grand example of Indian craftsmanship and dedication. Apart from the sanctums of the temple that house idols of Gods and Goddesses, the boat ride takes you on educative and entertaining ride that offers enchanting view of Indian history. The sound and light show is amongst the best that you can experience. A totally riveting visit.
  • The place is more like a small town than just a temple. With a lot of stuff to see and do, it offers us a way to understand divinity via using modern technology, which is a tough task. It does a good job, however. One can spend an entire day here. There's a good cafeteria, proper lockers, good washrooms and everything is clean and well maintained. The shrine has a grandeur that's not easy to be put in words. It's beside a main road, has a metro station named after it, so even transit wise it's very convenient.
  • It's not just a temple it's a temple complex. It has in house food court, toilets and large parking space. It is the finest example of Indian Architect. Each and every nook of the complex is very clean and well maintained. The temple committee provides very high security starting from entrance to every corner. A must visit place in Delhi. Always try to visit before 5 in the evening so that you can view mind blowing water show.
  • No photos and even phones allowed inside. Very strict. Built in 2005. Water show. Absolutely worth a longer visit. Gorgeous elephant statues with quotes. Immaculate across the board. One of my favourite attractions in New Delhi.
  • It is a must visit place if you are in Delhi.

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.
