NileGuide Expert tip:
Visit early morning or in the evening,especially if it is hot. You are supposed to take off your shoes before you enter the building. There is a lot of barefoot walking involved. Remember, the central hall is for meditation. No talking!
- India is a known as a country of hundreds of religions and communities, and the Bahai Temple is a symbol of such tolerance and respect. Built in 1997, in the shape of a white lotus, it is surrounded by nine cyrstal blue pools of water and lush green lawns. The idea is to create an illusion of a white lotus floating in water. This building welcomes worshippers, believers and non-believers from all over the country and the world - it strives to create a space of calm and positive energy. If not for the religious aspect of it, thousands tourists come everyday to view and enjoy the mammoth lotus structure built out of marble with the red sandstone pathways. Admission is Free.
