Built to resemble a flower, Lotus Temple serves as a place of worship offering freedom of expression to all faiths. Marvel at the architecture used in the temple's construction, from the 27 petal-like marble structures that make up the exterior, to the soaring central hall within. Afterwards, you can explore the extensive temple grounds to get a good look at the "blossom" from multiple angles. Be sure to check the onsite information center for details regarding events and services at the temple, as well as the Baha'i faith itself.

Lotus Temple Reviews
The building has interesting architecture that is very similar to the Sydney Opera House complete with the effect of the 'sails'. A truly beautiful building on beautiful grounds. But not much else... more »
It’s a really beautiful place to visit especially in December as the weather is cold. The area was well maintained except for the toilet facilities. more »
Very beautiful lotus building. Inside is very quite and peaceful. Can sit here for as long as you like. Good place for prayers and relaxation. Garden outside is very well maintained and you can see the workers constantly keep it neat and clean🙏 Entrance fee is free of charge 💲
One of the most beautiful monuments ever seen. It has a beautiful prayer hall which is open to everyone irrespective of their religion. A very silent and calm place to meditate. Located in Delhi center of the city is a must-visit place to appreciate the beautiful architecture. Do visit the museum which explains the Baha'i tradition and teachings.
