The structure is made up of pure white marble Around the blooming petals there are nine pools of water, which light up, in natural light. It looks spectacular at dusk when it is flood lit.
Lotus Temple, New Delhi, India – Blue Hour
Better on Black. Lotus Baha’i Temple, New Delhi just after sunset. Strange that the temple was closed even before the lights come on, just managed to take this shot from a difficult vantage point through the trees, on top of the fence, outside the compound wall. Had to “cut off” some tree branches on the right of the frame 😉
