Bahai Temple in Delhi
One of the treats in Delhi was going to see the Baha'i Temple. It's not listed as one of the main sites to see but the architecture was truly gorgeous. The architect was Iranian-born Canadian, Fariborz Sahba, and he designed a fabulous building, with nine doors and 27 petals of a lotus flower. The temple is intended to welcome people of all faiths, as Baha'i faith sees Abraham, Jesus and Mohammed as prophets who follow an evolutionary path of humankind. It was very peaceful to gaze at this temple.
