10 Gorgeous Photos Inside and Out of the Baha’i Temple in Germany

June 11, 2016, in Images > Architecture, by

Located at the foot of the Taunus Mountains of Germany, in the village of Langenhain, near Frankfurt, the Baha’i House of Worship in Germany was completed in 1964. Today Baha’is in Germany number in the thousands, and the country was home to one of the world’s first National Assemblies, elected in 1923. And when the House of Worship was dedicated, it was done so by the Hand of the Cause Ruhiyyih Khanum, who represented the first elected Universal House of Justice.

The German Baha’i House of Worship is the mother temple of Europe, and is known for particularly notable acoustics created within the dome. Built from steel, aluminium and glass, the dome has over five hundred diamond shaped windows that bring light in while giving the building its characteristic visual feel. We’ve collected a selection of beautiful photos of the temple for your enjoyment!
