The Lotus Temple, located in Delhi, India, is a Baháʼí House of Worship that was dedicated in December 1986. Notable for its flowerlike shape, it has become a prominent attraction in the city. Like all Baháʼí Houses of Worship, the Lotus Temple is open to all, regardless of religion or any other qualification. According to Shoghi Effendi, a Bahá'í temple is a “silent teacher” of the Bahá'í faith. The building is composed of 27 free-standing marble-clad "petals" arranged in clusters of three to form nine sides, with nine doors opening onto a central hall with a height of slightly over 34 meters and a capacity of 2,500 people. The Lotus Temple has won numerous architectural awards and has been featured in many newspaper and magazine articles. A 2001 CNN report referred to it as the most visited building in the world.
The temple was dedicated 23–27 December 1986 with a gathering of 8,000 Baháʼís from 107 countries, including some 4,000 Baháʼís from 22 provinces in India. On January 1 the temple was opened to the public and more than 10,000 people visited that first day.

Just wonderful. Free to all. Open every day except Monday. 4 services per day (at 10, 12, 15, 17). Opening hours : 9 to 5. Peaceful. All religions are welcome to pray. I recommend to investigate about the bahai faith and ask the people serving there about It!

It's the most peaceful place ever! That's all, its beautiful is eternal and the kind of peace you feel once you're inside the temple is tough to describe in words. There's no entry fee, but you can't take chips packet, packed snacks inside. The prayer timings are 10 AM, 12 Noon, 3 PM and 5 PM. It's a small prayer for 10 minutes where they recite some hymns, shlokas, verses from different religious scriptures. It's a spiritual experience. Definitely visit this place if you're in Delhi.

कमल मंदिर, भारत की राजधानी दिल्ली के नेहरू प्लेस के पास स्थित एक बहाई उपासना स्थल है। यह अपने आप में एक अनूठा मंदिर है। यहाँ पर न कोई मूर्ति है और न ही किसी प्रकार का कोई धार्मिक कर्म-कांड किया जाता है, इसके विपरीत यहाँ पर विभिन्न धर्मों से संबंधित विभिन्न पवित्र लेख पढ़े जाते हैं। भारत के लोगों के लिए कमल का फूल पवित्रता तथा शांति का प्रतीक होने के साथ ईश्वर के अवतार का संकेत चिह्न भी है। यह फूल कीचड़ में खिलने के बावजूद पवित्र तथा स्वच्छ रहना सिखाता है, साथ ही यह इस बात का भी द्योतक है कि कैसे धार्मिक प्रतिस्पर्धा तथा भौतिक पूर्वाग्रहों के अंदर रह कर भी, कोई व्यक्ति इन सबसे अनासक्त हो सकता है। कमल मंदिर में प्रतिदिन देश और विदेश के लगभग आठ से दस हजार पर्यटक आते हैं। यहाँ का शांत वातावरण प्रार्थना और ध्यान के लिए सहायक है।Kamal Mandir is a Bahiai worship site located near the Nehru Place of Delhi, India's capital. It is a unique temple in itself. There is no idol here or any religious activity of any kind, on the contrary, various holy articles related to different religions are read here. For the people of India, the lotus flower is a sign of God's incarnation as well as being a symbol of sanctity and peace. This flower teaches to be holy and clean despite blossoming in the mud, as well as it is also indicative of how religious competitiveness and even living within the physical prejudices, a person can be the most unconnected of them. About eight to ten thousand tourists visit the Kamal temple daily and abroad. The tranquil atmosphere here is helpful for prayer and meditation.

The place is magnificent , surrounded by trees and beautiful scenery. The lotus temple itself is enormous and beautiful. Mostly I liked its structure and architecture , which is great. The toilet in the vicinity is clean and well maintained. The only thing I didn't like about this temple is that it lack in its content. Taking pictures inside the temple is not allowed. you will be provided with the carry bag to carry your shoes in it. Its a short visit destination and nothing much to do rather than taking pictures.

The beauty of Delhi. The instructions have improved and the restrictions as well. A beautiful site for the outsiders to go look at and enjoy. Inside it, there is only the praying place where people of all religion can pray . If you are planning to bring kids, tell them in advance that in the praying hall, nobody talks. Enjoy it in the evening. No entry fees. And the last entry is around 6.15. enjoy.
