This architectural wonder looks like an enormous lotus blossom, reminiscent of the Sydney Opera House. Too bad the interior isn't even worth a look.

Is it possible to see Lotus Temple only from outside grounds? I happen to be there on a Monday when it is closed. So, is it still possible to see from outside without entering inside the temple?

It really depends how many sites are on your itinerary for the day. If you are an adherent to the Bahai religion you may want to stay longer. I don't think you need more than an hour. The grounds are beautiful as well so... More
