Overcome all obstacles to get to the Lotus Temple in Delhi at metro stop Kalkaji Mandir.  The day that Lenore and I went throngs of people were present.  They were wearing beautiful clothes of a variety of colors.

You can see the temple from a great distance–it is like gaining focus as you get closer to it.

The Lotus Temple is of the  Bah’ai faith which also honors all religions.  You are requested to deposit your shoes before climbing the stairs to the temple.

 

I loved the simple elegance of the Lotus  Temple and would highly recommend it.  www.bahaihouseofworship.in
