ISKCON Temple Delhi – This temple is dedicated to Lord Krishna and Radharani of Hinduism. The temple was built with stone and marble. This latticed tower temple is located at the highest point of the hill. You can find many carved wood and stone carvings in the temple walls, which explain the mythological stories of Hinduism.
Lotus Temple – Designed for tranquil worship, Delhi’s beautiful Lotus Temple (Bahai Temple) offers a rare pocket of calm in the hectic city. This architectural masterpiece was designed by Iranian-Canadian architect Fariburz Sahba in 1986. It is shaped like a lotus flower, with 27 delicate-looking white-marble petals. The temple was created to bring faiths together; visitors are invited to pray or meditate silently according to their own beliefs
Chhatarpur Temple – Delhi’s second-largest temple (after Akshardham), this impressive sandstone and marble complex dates from 1974, and is dedicated to the goddess Katyayani (one of the nine forms of Parvati). There are dozens of shrines with towering South Indian gopurams (temple towers), and an enormous statue of Hanuman stands guard over one part of the complex.
Gurudwara Bangla Sahib – This magnificent white-marble gurdwara (Sikh temple), topped by glinting golden onion domes, was constructed at the site where the eighth Sikh guru, Harkrishan Dev, stayed before his 1664 death. As at all gurdwaras, free meals are served to pilgrims daily. Just inside the entrance to the complex is a small museum, chronicling the history of Sikhism and its gurus and martyrs.
Swaminarayan Akshardham – Delhi’s largest temple, the Gujarati Hindu Swaminarayan Group’s Akshardham Temple was built in 2005, and is breathtakingly lavish. Artisans used ancient techniques to carve the pale red sandstone into elaborate reliefs, including 20,000 deities, saints and mythical creatures. The centerpiece is a 3m-high gold statue of Bhagwan Shri Swaminarayan surrounded by more, fabulously intricate carvings.
