Incredible India Adventure - Lotus Temple

This famous Lotus Temple is the Bahai House of Worship and is a prominent attraction in Delhi. It's known as the Lotus Temple due to its flowerlike shape and I have seen it on the newspaper and magazines. It didn't cost us anything to get in there and it's a place for all the religion around the world to gather and say their prayers. This religion believes that there is only one God in this world.

This was right at the entrance of the Lotus Temple.
Before entering, we have to take off our shoes. According to wikipedia, an average of 9 visitors visit this temple every minute.
A long distance and plenty of steps to get to the actual temple. It is huge!
At last we got there. Upon entering the holy place, we were given a briefing on what to do and not to do. We are not supposed to talk there as it's a place for people to say their prayers and to find peace there. So quiet that we heard every footstep.

There are also2 pools just outside the holy place. It's so relaxing.
Well, salute to the another grand design in India!
