...I had nearly run out of money, but my driver misunderstood my request to stop for the day and we went to a place called Lotus Temple. Luckily Lotus Temple does not charge because it is run by the Bahai, who are trying to recruit you. The Bahai are very nice, so the recruiting is not very annoying. I didnt know anything about Bahai before, but it seems it is a very benign religion that just wants everyone to get along and love each other. The Lotus temple is a big white temple that looks like giant petals like a flower opening, surrounded by 9 little blue pools of water. It was gorgeous, and I tried to say a little prayer that people would all just get along, in honor of the Bahai.
