Like all the other Bahá’í houses of worship, the one in Delhi- which is popularly known as the Lotus Temple- is nine-sided and is topped by a central dome. The Lotus Temple was built in the 1980s and is among India’s most spectacular contemporary buildings. A dazzling white structure, the temple stands in the form of a 27-petalled lotus, its petals arranged in groups of three along the nine sides of the edifice. Each petal is crafted from white concrete and clad with fine white Greek marble.

The building towers to a height of 34 mt, and is surrounded by green lawns and nine pools of water, occupying a total of 26.6 acres. An ethereal, lovely and delicate structure, notwithstanding its size.
