Inspired by a temple of the same name in Gandhinagar, a visit to Delhi’s Akshardham might be more of an education in the Hindu religion than a pilgrimage of worship. Because it was opened in just 2005, it incorporates years of Hindu wisdom and contemporary temple grandeur. Sixty acres of statue-dotted lawns ensure that you’re never wanting for space. For a slightly more sedate temple experience, head to Jagannath.
