9 Images from the Official Bicentenary Instagram Page

July 17, 2019, in Images > Community, by

We are so excited about the official Instagram page dedicated to celebrations of the bicentenary anniversaries of the Births of Baha’u’llah and the Bab: the Instagram username for this page is @twinbirthdays. This account, which is an offshoot of the Bahai.org family of official websites, first went live in 2017 and featured select materials you might have seen on the website for the bicentenary of the Birth of Baha’u’llah: www.bicentenary.bahai.org.

This Instagram page will be updated with images and videos in the coming weeks and months as Baha’i communities around the world begin celebrating the 200th anniversary of the Birth of the Bab, the Prophet-Herald of the Baha’i Faith. Perusing images now might help inspire and encourage other artistic endeavours around the world. To give you a glimpse, here are nine images from the @twinbirthdays page but be sure to follow it on Instagram in order to see and watch content as it is posted!
