It is located between Nehru Place and Govind Puri stations and provides access to tourist sites such as Kalkaji Mandir, Lotus Temple and ISKCON Temple which are situated very near to the station. The station was opened with the first section of the Line from Central Secretariat - Sarita Vihar on 3 October 2010, in time for the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony on the same day. The metro station also houses a departmental store.
