Ninefold Pathways: Unveiling the Bahá'í Temples

The Bahá'í temples, symbolic of the Faith's principles, are dedicated to the oneness of religion and humanity, characterized by nine-sided structures open to all. They are symbolic of the center of human life -- of how the point of unity for the community is the remembrance of God. In a world that is rapidly devolving into those who remember God vs those who forget God, the Baha'i temple (literally Mashriqu'l-Adhkar, the Dawning Place of the Remembrance of God) is a symbol that the remembrance of God is the center of human life and the source of all unity and peace.
