Video - What is Baha'i Pilgrimage

Updated: Apr 30



Baha'i Perspective has published a great 30 minute video of what Baha'i Pilgrimage involves, its significant and purpose.


Before His passing, Bahá'u'lláh indicated that the world headquarters for the Faith He had founded would be in the Haifa/Akka area in the north of what is now Israel. The region today is home to the spiritual and administrative heart of the Bahá'í Faith.


The final resting places of both Bahá'u'lláh and the Báb are in the region. The gold-domed Shrine of the Báb sits on the slopes of Mount Carmel in Haifa while the majestic Shrine of Bahá'u'lláh is located just across the bay at Bahjí, outside of Akka. Situated in the heart of magnificent gardens, these two spots are the most holy places in the Bahá'í world.


Each year, thousands of pilgrims come from around the world to pray and meditate in the Shrines, and to visit the other Bahá'í holy places in the Haifa/Akka area. These pilgrimages, which bring together Bahá'ís from all over the world, serve further to give social cohesion and integration to the Faith.
