It was day 3 and my excitement knew no bounds as I was looking forward to visiting the Lotus Temple on the same day. The Lotus Temple, which is also known as the Bahai Temple, is a world famous architecture built in the shape of a lotus flower. It represents the marvel of magnificent art through its décor and structure. There are several temples built in the same form imitating the original Lotus Temple, but the original is always original.
Being a person who loves adventures more than anything else, it was kind of a new venture for me. I was actually visiting historical places during my stay in Delhi. But I was glad with my sudden change of taste during the stay in Delhi. I decided not to make visits to any pubs or discotheques in the metro because these could be enjoyed at Bihar as well. But the one-time experiences at historical places could be enjoyed only once.
Coming to my visit to the holy Lotus Temple, I was highly spirited with the whole idea of spending a few hours there and discovering the place more. The ideal shape of the temple resembles a big white semi-opened lotus flower that is unique in its own different manner.
One of the striking features of the Lotus Temple is its culture. A devotee is allowed to read aloud and chant Holy Scriptures of any religion that he is from. However, a devotee cannot hold religious ceremonies within the temple compound.
The calmness that surrounds the magnificent temple is peaceful and one can forget all worries and erase ill-thoughts from one’s mind. The temple doesn’t follow any particular religion as such but the originality lies in the Buddhist state of art. There is more emphasis in meditation, which is known to be the true source of happiness by the Buddhist religion. One can experience divinity in the heart of the Lotus Temple and can also take a walk along the lush green territory of the temple premises.
I had a satiating day and I was full of energy at the end with my camera loaded with pictures of each and every art of the monument.
