Virtual Tour of Local House of Worship in Battambang, Cambodia

November 30, 2015, in Videos > Holy Places, by

In Ridvan of 2012, the Universal House of Justice announced the construction of local Houses of Worship in five regions around the world including Cambodia, India, Kenya, Colombia and Vanuatu. In this video we are taken on a virtual tour of the design of the local Baha’i House of Worship in Battambang, Cambodia which is currently being built.

Sochet Vitou Tang, the architect of this project, has described this place as a center where all people could “come to learn about life, about the environment, and the world beyond; a place where we come to build a unified world.” Battambang, Cambodia, is a place which in recent years has witnessed the emergence of a vibrant Baha’i community.

Had no idea that this local house of Worship existed. What a joy and what a temple. God bless the people of Cambodia.

Isn’t its design beautiful and serene? While the video is incredibly life-like it is my understanding that this House of Worship is under construction and is not yet completed. You are so very right though, what a joy!
