The house of worship is striking due to the amount of intricate carved detail, from its nine pillars to its large dome. Additionally, the grounds house large gardens that are perfect for quiet meditation and reflection. The temple and gardens are open every day from 6:00am to 10:00pm, but until your next visit, you can see the beauty of this space in these amazing photographs.
While there are currently only seven Bahá’í Houses of Worship in the world, the Bahá’í House of Worship for North America is the oldest surviving house of worship and can be found just north of Chicago in Wilmette, Illinois. This structure, like all of Bahá’í Houses of Worship, was built with and is maintained solely by donations from those that follow the Bahá’í faith; however, it is open and free to all people to visit, regardless of religion.
