About Lotus Temple

Lotus Temple, also known as the Bahai House of Worship, is a wonderful place to enjoy silence in the noisy city of Delhi. Styled after a lotus flower, it serves as the mother temple of the Indian subcontinent. Designed by Iranian-Canadian architect Fariburz Sahba, the temple was built to bring faiths together. It has 27 immaculate marble petals of a lotus. The particular flower was chosen as its an important symbol in Hinduism, Islam, Buddhism and Jainism. Around the petals are nine pools of water that look spectacular in the evening when light shadows fall on its surface. People of any religion are welcome to pray and meditate silently in the central hall of this place. There is an attached visitor centre that tells the story of Bahai faith. There is a vast expanse of green grasslands surrounding the temple structure where you notice people clicking pictures. Photography is prohibited inside the temple.

Pro Tip: It remains closed on Mondays
