Lotus Temple in New Delhi, India

The architect of this masterpiece was Fariborz Sahba and the building was finished in 1986. It looks just like a lotus flower with all the petals meeting at the top, some longer than others and some of them staying at the base, on the sides. It shows beauty and expresses what the architect meant and that is why it is considered as belonging to the Expressionist style. It is considered to be an extremely beautiful building and it was often called the “Taj Mahal of the 20th century” and was awarded a lot of prizes and distinctions for its unique architecture.
