The Iranian architect Fariborz Sahba designed the Lotus Temple in the shape of a gigantic lotus flower. The main structure of the temple is surrounded by nine ponds and all nine sides are opened towards the central room. The ‘flower petals’ are made of white marble. It is a temple of the Bahá’i religious order, that believes in the unification of all religions. It is the most visited building of the world: the temple attracts 50 million (!) visitors a year.
