The Lotus Temple is a multi-faith praying temple. It is also known as the Bahá’í House of Worship. Apparently these Bahá’í Houses are sharing some characteristics. They should be roughly rounded and have 9 sides. I looked a bit inside and it was obvious that everything was build around the number 9.
Anyone is welcome to enter the Lotus temple and stay as long as they want. You are welcome to pray for whoever you want and speak to whatever god you want and for as long as you want.
This complex was interesting and peaceful like many other sights in Delhi. A throw stone away from the hustle and bustle of the streets of Delhi but very quiet inside. Some people are repairing some parts of the site. Their kids are playing with them as it is Saturday and they are not at school.
I have been literally traveling the world and went to odd, interesting, strange, welcoming, funny and bizarre countries like Greenland, India, South Africa, Chile or Japan. But this week I had to go to a different country. Iran.
In order to fly there I chose to use the direct Finnair (AY) flight from Helsinki to Dubai and to use short Qatar Airways (QR) flights to get to Tehran.
I have had some problem with my Tripit badge on the left of the screen. For some strange reason it wouldn’t load on my Google Chrome. It would load if I would open this page with Firefox or IE though. The weirdest thing is that after loading it from Firefox or IE, I could then load it with Chrome.
So I decided I would take a different approach and cache the badge somewhere.
Here is how to do it:
Touch Calendar: widget that lets you see 6 weeks of events on google calendar TuneIn Radio Pro: very good online radio player Wunderlist: to do list Tripit: traveler helper Trapster: drive safely by knowing in advance where are the traps and accidents or road works ahead.
