I will begin the day by uploading a lesson on a structure located in India. This building is one of the beautifulest pieces around the world and it's only twenty seven years old. Here is "how to draw the Lotus Temple", step by step. This flower shaped temple is a house of worship located in New Delhi India. The structure was was finished on November 13, 1986 and it opened one month later. It sits on twenty six acres of land and is open to the public no matter ones religion might be. In fact, the temple was built for all those who want to gather and worship their God from whatever religion.

Starting from the base, grab your ruler and draw three small rectangular blocks to form the stairs of the temple. When that is done you can start drawing the actual structure of the temple which is three petal like mini shapes.

STEP 3.

Again, when you draw this temple it's almost like you are drawing a lotus flower. This means the shapes of each tier will be petal shaped like the said flower. Draw in four arrow shaped sections and flaps on each side of the building. It's like you're drawing a closed flower.
