  • A must-visit temple devoted to Bahai. This architecture is based on the sacred lotus flower and is built like one. Closed on Mondays though.

  • This is a beautiful place and I really love going there but infrequently ofcourse because massive crowd is there all the time. Though I really appreciate the work authorities have done to keep the place cleaned and hygienic but it would be nice to have a ticket to go in so that we can help the temple grow. Lets say maybe 10 rupees so that everyone can afford it. Our small contributions can make it grow better and help them who puts our efforts to keep this place best. That idea can help creating a proper queue so that people can come in line. Its just an idea but ill leave them for them to decide. Overall above good.
  • The place is quite good, it's not a temple to worship but a place to relax your mind and meditate in a big hall and there is no need to buy tickets as entry is free. Information centre helps us to understand more about the place and it's history. The Lotus Temple has won numerous architectural awards and has been featured in many newspaper and magazine articles. Overall visiting the temple is a good experience and also gives you peace but with a lot of people around you,it's get difficult. So, Please do visit there.
