Images of Akka and its Baha’i Holy Places

December 11, 2018, in Images > Architecture, by

The Baha’i Media Bank is a fantastic place to turn to for photos relating to the Baha’i Faith and its community building activities around the world. If you read their terms of use, you’ll see that the Baha’i International Community allows you to download and use the photos for noncommercial purposes — please don’t take my word for it and read the terms of use over carefully with your own eyes! We strive to always follow copyright law and are really grateful for this resource, whether we’re looking for historical photos or photos of children’s classes. I’ve compiled a list of my favourite photos of Akka and the Baha’i Holy Places in the prison city and its environs. I hope you enjoy this visual feast and I definitely recommend checking out the Baha’i Media Bank when you’re in need of photographs.

‘In her innermost heart’, is very endearing, and very true.
May God ever bless you Sonjel,
