Travellers talk about
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.

The Lotus Temple complex is highly over rated. First you walk through a nice garden, before entering the temple. The temple itself is very plain, austere and grossly over rated. There is nothing of note inside and is not worth the walk.

Beautifully crafted building loaded with enormous power of peace and serenity. One can visit this place to get peace.

It’s free of charge. Before entering the temple you will see a lot of local people selling souvenirs. You will pass thru a huge and beautiful garden before entering to the lotus temple. You have to take off your shoe (plastic bag is provided)

Worth a visit when in Delhi. Part of a day tour that I did. Remember to take a head scarf and cover your shoulders. You will get a bag there to put your shoes in before going up the stairs to the temple. No charge...More

Beautiful, peaceful place despite the hordes of tourists. Absolutely still worth a visit though. Walk around the perimeter and hen go inside for some quiet time in the midst of a crazy busy. Surely the design must have been inspired by Sydney Opera House?!

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.
