This architectural wonder looks like an enormous lotus blossom, reminiscent of the Sydney Opera House. Too bad the interior isn't even worth a look.

Building inside empty, just seating and meditating. There is a line, waiting to get inside. If you need to come here because it is popular just like we did, I recommend take a photo outside and leave. You cannot take photo inside anyways.

The temple built by Bahai community details about the efforts being done by the society in developing harmony between communities and that the loving mankind and serving it to the best is the greatest religion.

We were in the queue for 30 minutes. This is a good place for meditation. Architecture is very good with lush green campus.

It’s a nice place but not much developed from tourism Perspective. Go there if you are looking for a place where you can spend some time sitting peacefully and meditate or for your love to architectural wonders.

It is Rs. 100 for Uber from cannaught place. Long queue under the hot sun spoils the interest even to enter into its compound. The volunteers attitude is like we are the intruders to their so called temple. Nothing special than the structural beauty, which...More

Dear Marktay16 You need to be at the airport 3 hrs prior to your flight time. This takes an hour to drive from the airport depending upon the traffic. you might not want to miss your flight.
