This architectural wonder looks like an enormous lotus blossom, reminiscent of the Sydney Opera House. Too bad the interior isn't even worth a look.

This is a place of construction marvel though it seems to be a inspired by Australia's Opera but actually it represents a lotus flower. Here you can be at peace and meditate. The surrounding garden and the water bodies are also worth seeing.
