Located in the southeastern part of Delhi, the Lotus Temple was built in 1986 and is named after its shape of a lotus flower. The Lotus Temple is built of white marble. It looks like three white petals from a distance, and the lotus flower is surrounded by nine clear water pools. The tall and empty temple has neither gods nor decorations such as carvings and murals. The gardens and pools around the Lotus Temple are open and visitors can rest here. At night, the Lotus Temple is particularly beautiful under the light.
