Skywatch Friday...The sun sets on the Lotus


I stood there waiting for the crowds to move away, to capture the magnificient place in all its glory. I could hear my friends call out my name, but i stood ground.. I did not know if i would make a trip here again, and so i wanted to soak it all in one last time...A dear friend Sonal came by my side and nudged me towards the bus waiting for us...

I was at the Ba'hai temple or the Ba'ahi house of worship in Delhi.. We had come to Delhi as part of a 2week long vacation from college... And this was the last leg of the journey before we boarded the train to head back to Chennai.. 

The Ba'haĆ­ temple is one that welcomes people from all religions, giving them a common space to sit and pray/meditate...The structure is beautiful, in a lotus shape with water bodies surrounding its base. Pristine and white, it has visitors in awe at the sheer size and architecture style... The Ba'hai faith is a world religion whose purpose is to unite all races and peoples in one universal Cause and one common Faith.

I was going through some photographs i had from the college trips and found this among them.. During my evening walk, managed to get the photograph scanned and plan on digitising few more photographs!! :) Brought back such wonderful memories....

I have made multiple trips to Delhi since then, but am yet to revisit the Ba'hai temple....
