Lotus Temple Lotus Temple in Night Lotus Temple in Night

Fashioned like a Lotus Flower, the Lotus Temple is one of the most famous attractions of Delhi. It is the Bahá'í House of Worship popularly known as the Lotus Temple. The Bahá'í Faith is a monotheistic religion founded by Bahá'u'lláh in the 19th century which emphasizes on the spiritual unity of all humankind. Built in 1986, it serves as the Mother Temple of the Indian subcontinent. Its mesmerizing architectural beauty earned it several awards and recognition.

This wonderful place is open to all irrespective of religion or any other distinction. According to Bahá'í texts, the spirit of the House of Worship should be that it is a gathering place where people of all religions may worship God without denominational restrictions. It lays great emphasis on prayer and meditation as they believe that these two things are the key ingredients for the progress of the human soul.

The Lotus Temple architectural design consists of 27 free standing marble clad petals arranged in groups of three to form nine sides. There are no pictures statues or images displayed inside this temple or in the architecture. The nine doors of the Temple lead to the central hall which has the capacity of accommodating 2,500 people. Towering to a height of 40 mtrs, the central hall is also made of white marble. The white marble was brought from Penteli Mountain in Greece. The temple is surrounded by ponds and lush green gardens.
