BIRLA MANDIR                                                                                                   
It is another landmark close to Connaught Place and was built by industrialist Raja Baldev Birla in 1938. The temple is an important prayer site and contains idols of several deities. Interestingly Mahatma Gandhi, who inaugurated the temple, was also a regular visitor to it and would often pray there.

BANGLA SAHEB
Near Connaught Place in New Delhi, a vast and magnificent building that once belonged to Raja Jai Singh of Amber now stands stately Gurdwara Bangla Sahib, in memory of Guru Har Krishan ji. Guru Har Rai ji had two sons, Ram Rai was elder and the younger Har Krishan. Ram Rai had displeased his father on account of his manifesting miracles despite strict instructions not to do so as it was against the Sikh faith. Guru Har Rai ji had thus ordained Guruship to his younger son Har Krishan. Through a cunning and crafty design, the deranged and distraught Ram Rai involved Emperor Aurangzeb against the succession. The Emperor ordered Raja Jai Singh to get Guru Harkrishan ji to see him in Delhi. The Raja was a great devotee of the Sikh Guru's and he knew the true story of the succession too. The Raja instead of presenting the Guru before the King, made him his own guest. It so happened that at time Delhi was inflamed with the epidemic of smallpox and people in large gatherings had been visiting the Guru continuously. The Guru thus could not escapee the attack of smallpox and he left for his heavenly abode in 1664 at the tender age of just eight. It is at this place where the Guru breathed his last and the big palace was converted into an inspiring Gurdwara now known as Gurdwara Bangla Sahib, which is a sacred place for pilgrimage with the Sikhs.



LOTUS TEMPLE
Is a very recent architectural marvel of the Bahai faith and is visible from several spots in south Delhi. Located in Kalkaji in the south of Delhi, it is lotus shaped and has rightly been given the name. It is made of marble, cement, dolomite and sand. It is open to all faiths and is an ideal place for meditation and obtaining peace and tranquility.
