Shrine of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá: Structure rises above foundations

READ > Live Updates on the Construction of the Shrine of 'Abdu'l-Baha


Since the completion of the foundations for the Shrine of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, the first vertical elements are now being raised. The subterranean portion of the structure, which will lie beneath the circular geometry, is also beginning to take shape.


Work is advancing to lay the concrete platforms that will provide stability to the landscaping berms on either side of a central plaza.


The selection of photos below provides a view into the work currently underway.

“Void former” blocks are fitted together to separate the concrete platform from the soil.

Once “void former” blocks are put in place, reinforcement bars are laid for the concrete pour.

As one segment of the platform is completed, preparation continues on the next. The construction of concrete platforms for the berms is nearing completion.

Step by step, the construction of the Shrine of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá continues.
