UNIVERSAL HOUSE OF JUSTICE ANNOUNCES ARCHITECT FOR SHRINE OF ‘ABDU’L-BAHA
The recent call of the Universal House of Justice for the construction of the permanent Shrine of ‘Abdu’l-Baha in Akka has galvanized the Baha’i world. The selection of the edifice’s architect and the establishment of a fund to support the historic project were made known earlier today.
IN A LETTER TO ALL NATIONAL SPIRITUAL ASSEMBLIES, THE HOUSE OF JUSTICE ANNOUNCED THE APPOINTMENT OF HOSSEIN AMANAT AS THE SHRINE'S ARCHITECT.
PLANS FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE SHRINE WERE REVEALED BY THE HOUSE OF JUSTICE IN ITS ANNUAL RIDVAN MESSAGE.
The Bahá’í world is being summoned to build the edifice which will forever embosom those sacred remains. It is to be constructed in the vicinity of the Riḍván Garden, on land consecrated by the footsteps of the Blessed Beauty; the Shrine of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá will thus lie on the crescent traced between the Holy Shrines in ‘Akká and Haifa.
