What Is Ridvan?

Baha’i Blog’s Jordan Raj briefly explains the meaning and significance of the twelve days of Ridvan. Ridvan, also known as the Most Great Festival, commemorates an incredible period in history: it celebrates Baha’u’llah’s time in the garden of Ridvan on the outskirts of Baghdad in 1863 where He publicly declared His station as a Manifestation of God.

You may recognize Jordan from Baha’i Blog’s video series called “What’s That Word?”. You can watch all the episodes here: What’s That Word?
