Owner description: 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.

This place is worthwatching for the outside appearance of the unique construction. Do not get confused by the name 'temple' it is just a meditation centre which has empty silence loving halls for medication lovers. You can click some beautiful pictures from the outside of the temple and enjoy the gardens around it. My personal suggestion would be u can skip this place from the list of Delhi sightseeing as there are better places in Delhi where u can spend valuable time.

This is the place to take some moments of quiet peace and make a prayer. When you’re inside you just forget how crowded it’s outside.

The temple is open to members of all faiths. As you near the entrance of the temple itself, there are quotes posted that encourage reflection on the commonalities between religions and the unity of mankind.
Shoes cannot be worn inside the temple. Visitors are loaned a bag for shoe storage which is returned upon exiting the temple. Photos are not permitted inside the temple. It is a quiet respectful place for meditation, reflection, and prayer. Not for small children-a family with a crying baby was escorted out of the temple during our visit. While audio tours are not available, volunteers are happy to answer questions for you.
The grounds are beautiful and there are many places to take pictures of the temple and it’s gorgeous surroundings. At times, the line to enter the complex can be several blocks long. Check with your hotel or locals for suggested times.

This is a truly beautiful building which reminds Aussies of the Sydney Opera House. The aerial view shows how much like a lotus flower in a pond the building looks.
We queued to get inside where it is gloriously quiet and you can admire the architecture.

Very impressive from the outside. Set in lovely gardens, the Temple Is well worth seeing but strangely the interior lacked all spirituality. One felt as though there is a show about to begin.
