Lotus Temple Delhi
The Lotus Temple Delhi, named after its flowerlike shape, is a Bahai House of Worship and a prominent attraction in Delhi.
Completed in 1986, it serves as the Mother Temple for the Indian subcontinent.
The Bah ¡’ laws emphasize that the House of Worship is a gathering place where people of all religions may worship God without denominational restrictions.
Bahai scriptures also state that no pictures, statues or images can be displayed within the House of Worship and no pulpits or altars can be incorporated as an architectural feature.
The nine doors of the Lotus Temple open into a central hall, capable of holding up to 2,500 people.
The Temple has received wide range of attention in professional architectural, fine art, religious, governmental and other venues.
