EMTV News: Papua New Guinea Baha’i House of Worship Design Unveil

April 7, 2018, in Videos > News, by

This news piece from Papua New Guinea’s national TV station EMTV, reports on the unveiling of the design of the National Baha’i House of Worship of Papua New Guinea.

With an estimated population of four million people, Papua New Guinea has over 850 distinct languages and cultures, and design architects Henry Lape and Saeed Granfar said the House of Worship is hoped to unite all cultures and faiths in Papua New Guinea to serve the people.

This will be one of just two national Baha’i Houses of Worship in the world, the other being built in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
