Lotus Temple of Delhi

Nehru Place, New Delhi, India

Lotus TempleNestled in a quiet stretch amidst the busiest streets of the Indian capital is the distinctively unique and fascinatingly beautiful lotus-shaped insignia of the Bahai faith - the Lotus Temple. Built in 1986 by Bahá'u'lláh, this Bahai House of Worship, draws into its sanctum sanctorum people from across the globe irrespective of creed and community.

The Bahai Faith
What distinguishes the Bahai faith from the legion of other religious adherences, is its raw faith minus the pomp and show, priests and sermons. Theirs is an ensemble of all holy writings in the world and they provide refuge to all humanity, no matter what caste, color or religion. Believers join hands to the Lord in complete quietude. Even when they sing, it is only the human voice that resonates in the dome-shaped temple interiors, no instruments accompany. There are about seven Bahai temples across the world surviving the lineage of peace and harmony amidst a chaotic world shedding blood and tears even in the name of one's faith.

The Structure
The Bahai temples share certain architectural elements like the nine-sided, surmounted by a dome and a single undivided room under it. The white marbled Bahai temple, here, looks like a lotus in half bloom with 27 massive petals that lie at the confluence of nine pathways and pools all mirroring the Bahai beliefs that there are nine ways to reach God. The very structure and its interiors inspire faith and tranquility. Visitors sit and meditate for hours in complete silence.

Be it the aura emanating from the elegant structure or the munificence of their faith, the Bahai abode of worship is synonymous with peace and serenity, of a kind, hitherto unknown in the bustling capital.
