Let me clarify something for everyone. As the name itself suggest this place is a house of worship for the Bahai faith. One should come here with an open mind instead of comparing it with other places which are buildings made for a different purpose (I saw a comparison to Sydney Opera House, silly). The temple is located in south delhi, nearest metro halt would be Nehru place (come out and start walking to the left).
There is no entry fee, the ushers (Bahai volunteers) will que the visitors and somteimes handout small literature and ask you to remove your footwear and place them in bags. While you will move towards the main atrium (prayer hall) inside the temple where you can be seated and meditate or move on back to collect your shoes into the temple garden or the information centre.
The crowd you will see would predominantly local as a lot of local visitors from near and far come to this place. They handle on an average 10,000 people daily.
Tips: Check the summer/winter opening and closing hours from their website.
Do spend some reasonable time seated in the prayer hall, gives you some time to appreciate the interiors.
Come around 5 pm, finish your tour inside and lounge in the gardens and take some memorable pictures as the sun goes down.
Dedicated prayers are held at 10:00am, 12:00pm, 3:00pm and 5:00pm.
