Designed by Iranian-Canadian architect Fariburz Sahba in 1986, Delhi’s Bahai temple is a wonderful place to enjoy silence – a rare experience in Delhi. Styled after a lotus flower, with 27 immaculate white-marble petals, the temple was created to bring faiths together; visitors are invited to pray or meditate silently according to their own beliefs. The attached visitor centre tells the story of the Bahai faith. Photography is prohibited inside the temple.

Nearby is Delhi’s flamboyant Iskcon temple , operated by the Hare Krishna movement.
