First let me tell you that it is also known as bahai temple. Before we start the history I must want to tell one thing about lotus temple that it is most visited monuments in India. Construction of bahai temple is completed in year of 1986. You must be interested why it is named lotus temple. Many of people are saying that this temple looks like a lotus in shape and because of it is known as lotus temple. But this is half truth. Lotus is a symbol of love and purity. It gives the message of immortality. And because of this bahai temple is designed like a lotus flower and it is known as lotus temple.
