Bahai Temple, also called the Lotus Temple, Delhi

The Bahai faith draws from both Hindu and Buddhist beliefs and they have adopted the lotus flower as their symbol and built a stunning temple in Delhi, India. As the Bahai faith believes in spiritual synthesis the interior consists of a huge empty space.

A remarkable building.
Fascinating building - I`ve never seen anything quite like it. (:o)
Sanchita Mukherjee: it is quite, especially as you see it rising over the smog of Delhi, like a giant lotus floating in the horizon.
