about lotus temple

Also called Bahai Temple or the Bahai House of worship, the Lotus Temple New Delhi is an important landmark in the city. This place of worship of the Bahai sect is literally constructed in the shape of a large, white lotus flower. An architectural feat in itself, this beautiful temple is flocked by people from all religions, a living example of the openness and equality promoted by Bahai laws. 

One is allowed to read or chant from holy scriptures belonging to any religion, but nobody is allowed to play musical instruments, give sermons or hold religious ceremonies inside the hall. You can experience calm like never before, for the main temple area prohibits visitors from making any noise whatsoever. This exemplifies the true nature of Buddhist traditions, which lays emphasis on meditation as a means to experience divinity. 

Winner of a number of architectural awards, Lotus Temple is truly a sight to behold, especially in the night when it is all lit up in breathtaking splendour.
