The Baha'i Temple or the Lotus Temple is situated on the top of the Kalkaji hill in the South Delhi. This temple has been categorised as the 'Taj Mahal of the 21st century.' This temple was constructed in 1980-81. This temple is one of the latest Baha'i temple in India and joins six other Bahai temples around the world. This temple is built out of white marble and in the shape of a half opened lotus flower.
The design looks like a half opened Lotus flower with 27 freestanding "petals" made of marble. The architect, while designing the temple took into account the eternal beauty of Lotus flower. The construction work took almost 10 years before it finally got shape and was open for public.
