The Lotus Temple is a Baha'i-related building that may be seen in New Delhi, the country's capital. As one of the most famous destinations in the world, this building's majestic construction expands into the shape of a stunning white petal lotus. You will come across a grand entrance gate, lovely floral gardens, and shimmering lakes as you enter the temple complex. Despite the bustling crowd, the pathway leading up to the temple doors is surrounded by beautiful green plants, giving the area a sense of tranquility. This temple welcomes everyone, regardless of nationality, religion, ethnicity, or gender, and aims to spread the idea of the Almighty's unity. THINGS TO DO AT LOTUS TEMPLE:

 • When you enter, the captivating architecture will lull you into a reflective silence: This lotus-inspired building spans 26 acres of land and is surrounded by lush, planted gardens. It is made from white Greek marble and has 27 petals while standing alone. As stated in the Bahai scripture, these petals are arranged in three groups to give the building a nine-sided circular shape. The Lotus Temple lacks altars, pulpits, and all Baha'i Houses of Worship fixtures. There are no statues, photos, or other images inside. • Try a new form of meditation in an entirely new, happy environment: The Bahai House of Worship, unlike the majority of other houses of worship, forbids ritualistic rites and has no set schedule for worship services. Any religious text may be read and chanted in the temple complex, and musical interpretations of religious texts can be sung without restrictions. • Participate in the ongoing engagements: Anyone interested in engaging in them can choose from four main or 'core' activities offered by The Lotus Temple. These consist of: 1. Children's Classes: Through Baha'i teachings, these classes seek to instill qualities like charity, justice, kindness, unity, courage, truthfulness, dependence on God, and service to humanity. 2. Junior Youth Sessions: Kids between the ages of 11 and 14 can take these classes to help them grow intellectually and spiritually. 3. Devotional Meetings: These gatherings work to foster a loving and peaceful environment within the neighborhood. 4. Study Circles: These gatherings are intended to thoroughly study the Bahá' Writings, Prayer, and Life and Death to instill a sense of spirituality among the populace. 5. Lotus Temple also offers the One Ocean Events, a performing arts series that honors the variety and unity of humanity in addition to its primary programs. • Explore the neighborhood: Kalkaji Devi Temple (600 m) ISKCON Temple (2.6 km) Humayun Tomb (6.5 km) China Gate (8.6 km) Tomb of Safdarjung (9.2 km) Quantum Tower (9.8 km) Lodhi Tower (10 km)
