What people say

"The whole complex from top to bottom is made of pure marble. The universal symbol of peace, a lotus flower, gives the temple not only its name but shape as well. Photography is restricted in the inner sanctum and there is a strict code of silence to be maintained at all times. Open to all castes and creeds, the temple is an ideal place for anyone who wishes to meditate and pray. The temple is also known as the place of Baha’i faith."
"The Lotus Temple stands as a beacon of hope, harmony, and spirituality, inviting people of all backgrounds to come together in unity and peace. Its awe-inspiring architecture and inclusive ethos make it a symbol of India's rich cultural heritage and commitment to pluralism and diversity."
