  • One of the best places to visit in India. The visual treat you experience there is priceless.. I would have given 5 stars, but the food quality served at the food court was not worth it. It was even fine that the prices were high, but the quality was poor.. Also, if you reach there early, make sure you get the water-show tickets too. Because, that counter opens at 5 pm, and before that they won't give you the tickets..And once you finish the exhibition and then go out to take the water-show tickets, you will face the long queue..So better book online..I am sharing this because I had a bad experience regarding this..
  • Its a very beautiful spiritual place in Delhi. Very peaceful and clean place. Here a water show available which is very wonderful. Its spread in many countries. Many followers of this temple and God. They have very deep faith in him. I think its a very great view. Once must come here and enjoy the beautifulness and peacefulness.
  • Its a piece of art, purely a piece of art. One of the best man made monuments i'v ever visited. Security is very high, you can not carry any cameras, belts, metal etc inside. You need to pass through 3-4 security checks. But once you visit inside, you forget everything & a wow factor comes on your face. The gate of the main temple is very high & too thick, its made up of Gold. When you get inside the temple, the roof is too high & there is art everywhere & on everything. There are many gardens inside the premises & you can easily spend 3-4 hours here.
