Great place. If you want to unwind yourself of all the stresses and tensions of the city sure give this place a visit. I personally find it very calming and soothing. You get to see many other things there too like the gardens etc. P. S. - Try to skip a visit here on national holidays because on those days due to the heavy rush the doors to the temple are closed and you will not be allowed to enter inside.
One of the only 9 Baha’i temples in the world so worth a visit. Big and beautiful structure, no ticket cost. Baha'i house of worship is one of the serene and tranquil place for your spirituality to connect and flourish. Interesting place to visit, one of the architectural beauties that Delhi has. The interior view of the structure and the pools outside a sight.
Such an amazing place. The administration was a peace loving community who expertly handled the crowd that refused to stay in a single file carrying their shoes in plastic bags..the hall inside had the inlays of a church and had a powerful energy inside. A man walked up to the podium and recited verses from different religious scriptures and sang with such a melodious voice that reverberated off the walls. It was soulful..
This is an amazing place, it's very peaceful, and beautiful. Even though there are lots of visitors daily visiting here, it's very quiet. I went here in June and it was very hot. They don't allow shoes here and I have to walk on the hot road it was wet but the stone gets hot in summer and with the sun on the top you can't enjoy so I would recommend to go in any different season.
A very interesting building on the outside, especially when compared to all the old forts and temples you may visit. There can be a long queue, but it moves relatively quickly. And there’s no entry fee. The lawns are nice, but there’s no access to them.
