The Baha'i House of Worship stands as a symbol of unity. It is a sacred space for all people to commune with God. The House of Worship is open daily to all for contemplation, personal prayer and meditation. The building's white walls of lace-like ornamentation, and its dome rising 135 feet above the main floor, create a scene of unsurpassed beauty and tranquility. Exquisite gardens and fountains surround the Temple, and directly, to the west, is a Welcome Center, where visitors may explore the history and symbolism of this unique structure and watch a brief introductory film. Designated on the National Register of Historic Places.
