Bahai Temple of Worship. Worth Visiting because of the architecture and if you want a moment of peace.
Lotus Temple: a splendid lotus-shaped temple a bit like the Sydney Opera House. This is a house of worship where one venerates all prophets, all religions, but especially where the principle of truth, unity and world peace are put forward (no restaurants nearby).
I headed to Lotus temple for some Bahai teachings. This was one place where even though hundreds of people were there, pin drop silence was maintained. Such is the power of the place. This is where one can sit and meditate and the walls are adorned with Bahai teachings.
The famous Bahai Temple situated in Kalkaji is a place of utmost silence and peace. It's architecture is such that all rays converge at a point to create a divine atmosphere. One's wishes are said to granted here for the power that lies in the Lotus shaped construction. Many concerts are held within the premises for the sound of music multiples the energy levels of the people present and the area in and around the temple.

The Lotus temple is similiar to the shape of a lotus and hence looks amazing at night due to the lights lit. It is made of white marble and the temple believes of the unity of all religions. The ponds and gardens here are very attractive and relaxes your mind and heart.
Lotus Temple: This famous temple is also known as the Bahai Temple. It looks like a lotus and looks really nice at night. People from all religions are welcomed to visit the place. It is a great place to have a picnic as the gardens and the ponds are really calm and quiet. It remains open from 9 am to sunset. You should visit it if you ever visit Delhi.
From there we move to the Bahai Lotus Temple. There was a huge queue outside the temple complex and it would take at least an hour to even enter the premises. Having visited such temples before, we take a hunch that there wouldn’t be anything worth missing within it (which later turned out to be right). So we look for spots and gaps in the trees surrounding the complex to click a few pics.
The temple is utterly beautiful from the outside - a huge white lotus floating above the city. Try getting there weekend morning and you'll see festive dressed Indian girls in vivid saris of all colors. Don't be shy to ask for a pic together! Moreover, you'll be asked to pose a gazillion of times at a family portrait, with someone's child or teenage boys who'll definitely tell their friends you've hooked up.
