Abstracts at the Lotus Temple

Today I went to the Lotus Temple for a short while. A Bahai House of Worship, it is a beautiful structure made of marble, and open to all religions. Shaped like a lotus (and hence the name), it is a nice place for a quiet little evening.

Given its shape, the Lotus Temple is a great place to shoot some abstracts. I do feel that someone who has spent some time studying buildings and architecture could have done much more justice to it!

    Yes, it s magnificent structure, I visited this once and found very calm and quite place . I have seen this building from a distance on a number of times as this was visible from my working Seat on 14th floor of the Tower where I used to sit for my work for almost Six years. It came in existence somewhere around in 1980 and since then it has been a place of worship for some and more of tourism attraction for a lot who visit Delhi. It s identical to Opera Building in Sydney.
