What travellers are saying
- This temple is situated on the other side of the Yumana river and does take some time, effort to get to. However, it is definietly worth a visit.
The temple was a labour of love. It took 20,000 volunteers - 20 years to build.
The level of intricate detail and skill on the white stone - inside the main temple - are equally beautiful and incredible.
While it is relatively new, people will be visiting, admiring and talking about this temple for centuries to come.
Your entry ticket gives you access to an insoor section which includes a mechanical boat ride. It encapsulates 10,000 years of Indian history into 10 minutes. Very educational and uplifting.
Bear in mind, there’s a high level of security. You cannot take your mobile inside, but you can leave it safely with them, however, need to fill out some paperwork at entry point.
My advice is, don’t bring your phone or secure it in your vehicle prior.
You will need around 2-3 hours to visit this site.Written 30 September 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- This is an insanely good hidden gem in Delhi - kids under 14 are free entry and its 600 rupees for adults which is not insignificant but worth every penny - definitely get a guide as you go into the site, and visit first thing in the morning or late afternoon - the main tomb is a stunning fusion of architetural styles and a clear blueprint for the much better known and busier Taj Mahal. This is like a pilot episode for that building!Written 6 September 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Please be mindful of what you wear to a holy place. Wear something that covers your body and is not revealing at all. Gurudwara is always a place where everyone is suppose to cover their head with a piece of cloth at all times in the premises.
Refrain from using mobile phones and talking inside the Gurudwara.
The prashad is absolutely divine. Please don’t waste any.
If you connect to the place I’m sure you’ll come back again and again.Written 1 September 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- The lotus temple was incredible to see! The architecture was brilliant and the interior space allows you to see the gardens any which way you look. All are welcome here - no matter your faith. The lotus stands out in its green setting and also hosts a small museum on site.
I wasn't feeling well on the day of my visit so the heat was a little unbearable at times - so bring an umbrella (and iced water) as shelter from the sun is few and far between.
Also note there are no places to eat around the temple/grounds.
If you are coming from the railway station, this is quite a walk with nothing to see - there are some stalls on route, but this is mainly souvenirs and warm bottled water.Written 23 September 2023
- A beautiful architectural temple. It was very crowded on the date we went and no social distancing but than Lord Krishna looks after his devotees. Wanted to eat at Govinda but very limited menu esp for dietary needs.Written 23 March 2023
- It is not just beautiful to look at but thoughtfully planned providing good flow for pilgrims with multiple levels of separation using contour of the land.Written 27 July 2023
- This is, like most temples, this is quite a complex structure. There are many areas, each significant, which our knowledgeable tour guide explained. All of the locals were paying homage to their respective God, all sincere and quite dedicated to their Hindu religion. We felt safe inside with locals not even acknowledging us except when we got in the way when ascending to a specific area. No shoes of course and lots and lots of chanting and noise. We made a donation and hoped their Gods would look kindly on us!!! Not much parking as like all of these locations right in the middle of urban Delhi. Plenty of hawkers selling their wares to navigate, but just be stern but polite. Again, best get advice on what day you intend to visit.Written 10 April 2023
- Visited with my friends. Being a Delhiites I should have visited it very early or very often, but I confess I visited there first time. Saw the place where Guru Teg Bahadur was beheaded by Aurangzeb.Written 3 August 2023
- We learned from our guidebook that this complex, not far from the Humayun mausoleum, was worth visiting. So, after the visit to that mausoleum, we got transported to it by a motorickshaw.
This is a high place for Muslim worship in present-day India.
Dargah means mausoleum. Nizamuddin (full name: Khwaja Nizamuddin Auliya, 1238-1325) is a Sufi saint, belonging to the " Chishti" order. The order originated in present-day Afghanistan and is one of the four main orders of the sect of Sufi mystical "monks". Within the Chishti order, I learned that Nizamuddin is the founder of a particular branch, called precisely "Chishti Nizami".
The surrounding neighborhood was named after him, and also the nearby Hazrat Nizamuddin station, which is today one of the three main railway stations in Delhi.
Here the Nizamuddin shrine stands (which, however, is much later than him; as far as I read it dates back to 1562), together with other buildings, which host other shrines, shops related to his cult, and also a small baoli (stepwell).
To get to the mausoleum, from the spot of Lodhi Road where our motorickshaw left us, we walked a narrow, picturesque and crowded pedestrian street, lined with shops of all kinds. These shops are evidently favored by the continuous influx of shrine worshippers. After passing through an entrance arch, the shops also continue inside, further narrow and winding. Finally, after skirting the baoli, you reach the very crowded area where the shrine stands, under a large, highly decorated marble canopy surmounted by an onion-shaped dome.
No less evocative are other shrines that flank the courtyard where the main one stands.
Behind an offer, we received our tray of rose petals, with which to sprinkle the shrine.
The whole is extremely picturesque. And it certainly would have been even more so, if we had stayed until sunset, when, apparently, the Sufis sing poignant religious hymns. But it was not in our program to dwell so much.
As far as we could understand, after the Great Mosque this is the most evocative Islamic place of worship in Delhi.Written 17 March 2020
- This Mughal era mosque is still the largest in India. We approached from the market, there are some steep steps to climb. At the top you need to leave your footwear (our tour guide payed the correct bribe to ensure they were still there after our visit). The floor is hot and not the cleanest (you are allowed to wear your hotel slippers). You also need to cover up bare legs and shoulders, sarongs and garment are provided for this (more tipping).
The courtyard is massive and apparently accommodates up to 25k worshippers. The architecture is good, sandstone and marble, nice domes and minarets. The large prayer niche is of marble.
You can walk inside and take pictures and there are fine views of the red fort and lots of kites and pigeons (which are fed by the locals).Written 27 September 2023
- Absolutely a gorgeous Temple dedicated to lord Kartikeya. The most striking thing about the temple is its cleanliness. I have not seen any other temple which is so clean in delhi. Mostly visited by Tamil community. As a north Indian you may get a stare or two from the priests there which i did ignore as they might be surprised to see a northie coming to this temple. Otherwise its a nice and peaceful temple. Really liked it.Written 22 February 2023
- Very peaceful place. Really loved the positive atmosphere there.
I frequently visit this and i recommend everyone to visit.Written 17 March 2021
- Located near R K Ashram Marg metro station, this is the best place for meditation. The environment is calm, spiritual and one will find inner peace here away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The place is very clean, the garden is beautiful and well maintained.Written 11 May 2021
- Located at a walking distance from Rajiv Chowk metro station, it is a very old temple. You will find huge rush if you visit on Tuesdays, it is less crowded on other days. There are a few tea and snack stalls just outside the temple.Written 8 May 2021
- I went to Kalkaji Mandir, along with my wife and parents.
How to reach here : Best way is via Metro. Hey down at Kalkaji metro station and 2 mins of walk will lead you straight to the Mandir.
The other way is via car and there is some not much, parking space available.Written 22 December 2019
