Beautifully manicured gardens frame this magnificent, white-stone structure, which was completed in 1953. Its soaring, 191-foot dome has an airy atmosphere, courtesy of a lacy piercework exterior. The Middle Eastern-inspired structure is one of only seven Baha'i temples in existence and the only one present in the western hemisphere. The interior is as breathtaking as the exterior, and guided tours are available on request. The temple is an active place of worship, so be mindful of others when you visit.
